‘I think what Vallotton ultimately became was a painter of stillness. His subjects are frozen in time. Whether it was embracing couples, reclining nudes, outdoor activities, or inanimate objects, there was always a photographic quality to his works. Indeed, photography was part of his creative process, but his paintings transcend documentary function and enter a state of ambiguous storytelling.’
