    George Rouault Biography

    Georges Rouault (1871-1958) was a French painter and a leader in the avant-garde school of Fauvism, which emphasized strong colors and broad, evocative brushstrokes that rejected naturalism. He was also part of the Catholic Renewal and a friend of the Catholic philosopher Jacques Maritain, which was deeply reflected in his art.

    Collection Description

    This collection consists of two prints (numbers 11 and 56) from the French artist George Rouault's Miserere series, which contains fifty-eight lithograpic prints in its entirety (the series had 450 editions printed). The titles are
    • No. 11: Tomorrow will be beatuiful, said the shipwrecked man.
    • No. 56: In these dark times of vainglory and unbelief, Our of Land's End keeps vigil.
    Rouault created the prints between 1913 and 1927 for Ambroise Vollard, his dealer, although they were not printed until 1948. The prints reflect Rouault's Christian faith and the redemption of suffering, and comment on the broken world of Europe of World War I.
    The prints are stored in one oversize box.
