La Porte Ouverte, 1892, Edouard Vuillard
Still thinking about the two small Vuillards I saw at the Met, after seeing the Fra Angelico show. They were so good.
They were both in a tilted case, side-by-side, part of the Robert Lehman Collection. One is mostly yellow, with a yellowy wallpaper pattern, lamp, and a woman at a piano. The other is mostly green, with a window and a melancholy man. Both paintings are very small and simple, and perfect. I can't find any images on-line or in any books, and don't remember the titles or dates. If someone goes please take a picture for me.
