Felix Vallotton was a daring and provocative painter who made his name in Paris at the turn of the 20th-century.

At this time Paris was the unrivalled capital of the art world. Impressionism and post-impressionism were at their height as the city was being beautified with new boulevards, parks and theatres, and artists were increasingly seen as the leaders of a new avant-garde society.

It was into this world that the 16-year-old Felix Vallotton landed, who started offering up witty woodcuts that sometimes included unsettling observations of domestic and political life. His works were frequently published in the press and came to be regarded as one of the greatest and most distinctive printmakers of his age.

This comprehensive survey of his career will include more than 80 paintings and prints in a range of subjects: from portraits, still-lifes and landscapes, to some of his most bitingly satirical prints.
