The Bridge Game
The Bridge Game was painted at a time when French artists such as Vuillard were beginning the transition from impressionism to abstract art and modernism. Vuillard preferred to paint women as his subjects and excelled at creating warm, inviting interiors with splendid colors and incredible details. In The Bridge Game players sit illuminated by a floral chandelier and are surrounded by works of art. This piece is a marvelous example of Édouard Vuillard's interior works.
