One of the most distinctive French artists of the 20th century, Georges Rouault is renowned for simple images that carry profound emotions. He was an apprentice stained-glass painter before becoming a pupil of Gustave Moreau, who taught him to find inspiration in his own imagination. Around 1903, the artist began painting vivid watercolors representing clowns, corpulent businessmen, criminals and judges. Rouault was a devout Catholic, associated with a church movement that advocated a return to the religious orthodoxy of Medieval times.

This exhibition, drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection, presents a selection of the artist’s prints done between 1917 and 1948. In these bold images of the seamy side of life, Rouault saw the want of divine grace and the miracle of redemption.
