Humble beginnings become illuminated in this Edouard Vuillard video, The Pathways of Memory. The 30 minute program delves into the creative psyche of Vuillard by focusing on his historical piece, The Public Gardens. The video also accounts for various other attributes of his work and career. These notably include:
- his valued painting technique
- symbolism in his work
- influence of symbolist theater
The program attempts to answer very technical questions about his creative approach, while briskly dissecting historical contexts surrounding the late 1800's and early 1900's, the time where Vuillard was prolific and steadily working on his craft. The video also pulls quotes directly from his cherished journal.
