Georges Rouault Art For Sale

Georges Rouault was a French painter, draughtsman, and printer, whose work is often associated with Fauvism and Expressionism. From 1895 on, he took part in major public exhibitions, notably the Salon d’Automne. In 1907, Rouault commenced a series of paintings dedicated to courts, clowns and prostitutes. These paintings are interpreted as moral and social criticism. He became attracted to Spiritualism and the dramatic existentialism of the philosopher Jacques Maritain.

About Georges Rouault

French painter, draughtsman, printmaker and designer, Georges Rouault created a personal style of Expressionism that gives him a highly distinctive place in Modern Art. Rouault was born in 1871, in the cellar of a house in Belleville, a working class quarter of Paris near the Père Lachaise cemetery, while the city was being bombarded by government troops quelling the Paris Commune. His father was a finisher and varnisher of pianos at a local factory. Rouault’s grandfather was an amateur art collector who bought engravings, lithographs and Rembrandt painting reproductions. From 1885 to 1890 Rouault was apprenticed to a stained glass maker, his work included the restoration of medieval glass; the vivid colors and strong outlines characteristic of the medium left a powerful imprint on his work.
