On the occasion of the exhibition Édouard Vuillard: A Painter and His Muses, 1890–1940 (at the Jewish Museum through September 23, 2012), Norman L. Kleeblatt writes about Vuillard's substantial influence on contemporary painting.

Kleeblatt notes: "As a source for modern and contemporary artists, Vuillard has hardly seemed a match for Cézanne, Picasso, and Duchamp. But conversations with [Lisa] Yuskavage led me to reconsider a host of postwar and 21st-century artists whose works are clearly in Vuillard’s debt."
