The well-known painter Félix Vallotton (1865–1925), a Lausanne native who made his home in Paris, created many woodcuts in the 1890s in which he lampooned the everyday lives of his contemporaries. His style, influenced by the Nabis in Paris and the German Old Masters, is characterized by flatness, accentuated contours, and the suggestive power of the line. Like Albrecht Dürer before him but with a modern formal vocabulary, Vallotton elevated the woodcut to equal status with painting.
