Intimisme (Intimiste)

A form of painting notably developed by Edouard Vuillard and Pierre Bonnard in which scenes of daily family life are caught with a quiet by lyrical intimacy.  Their brushwork broadly follows the Impressionists, though Vuillard and his brother-in-law Ker-Xavier Roussel used a muted range of tones.  In the work of other turn-of-the-century artists such as Edmond François Aman-Jean and Paul Albert Besnard, Intimiste studies are mixed with an element of Symbolist mystery.  In England, similar intimate interiors were painted by Walter Richard Sickert and Philip Wilson Seer.  (Nineteenth Century Painters and Painting: A Dictionary by Geraldine Norman)
