Félix Vallotton (French, 18651925) belonged to the Nabis (prophets), a group of young Parisian painters, who banded together in 1889 and deemed all art essentially decoration. Vallotton garnered much recognition for his woodcutsa printmaking technique in which a design or pattern is carved into the surface of a block of wood and then printed. His woodcut style featured a stark balance of black and white, opting not to use gradations or shading.
