Before Treatment

After Treatment

Maurice Utrillo was the son of Suzanne Valadon, an artist and also a model for Puvis de Chavannes, Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec. Plagued by alcoholism and mental disorders, Utrillo was encouraged to paint in order to release his on-going stresses. While he was in and out of mental institutions most of his life, he continued to paint and by the 1920s was well recognized for his abilities. He never followed current traditions or adhered to the major artistic currents, the "Fauvist", "Cubist" or "Post-Impressionist" movements. His landscapes contain simple buildings erected by human hands. They are the foundations of villages, suburbs and towns.
