This quiet domestic scene shows all the warmth and intimacy of Vuillard’s late paintings. We look into the elegant drawing room of a Parisian home – that of the Wormser family, at 27 rue Scheffer. The decoration reflects the taste of fashionable French society in the 1920s: pictures by Manet, Monet, Renoir and Roussel hang on the wall, and above the piano, obscured by the reflection of a striped sun canopy, is a large pastel by Degas. Standing to the left is Madame Wormser, née Olga Boris, the wife of French banker André Wormser. Their four children – Diane, Sabine, Dominique and Olivier – are grouped in the brightly lit area on the right. Diane sits with the family’s pet dog at her feet and a musical score in her hands. Sabine, the youngest daughter, is next to her, absorbed in Dominique’s piano playing.
