The title is a reference to the French artist, Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940), whose dark and richly patterned interiors of compressed spaces are evoked here. A woman sits at a table with a child in a domestic setting. The dark patterns punctuated by lights and mid tones create a moody feeling as well as a sense of abstraction. Beckerman takes what could be a very static image with two centralized figures and creates a sense of mystery, intimacy and motion.
