Catalogue Note

The view of Square Berlioz was a theme that Vuillard held close to his heart as it was situated right outside his apartment at 26, rue de Calais in Paris. He moved to the area around the Places des Batignolles in 1908 and immediately felt at home. He resided in his fifth floor apartment for the next eighteen years and enjoyed observing from his balcony the daily activities of the square (named after the French romantic composer Louis-Hector Berlioz).
