GEORGES ROUAULT: THE ARTIST OF RELIGIOUS SENSITIVITY

Employing rich, intense color to depict portraits, landscapes and still lifes, the French painter and draughtsman, Georges Henri Rouault, is remembered for portraying the naked reality of mankind with the violence of drawing and color, the dynamism of the line and insistent brush strokes to create allegories of debauchery, misery, vice and indifference.

Famous as the most passionate artist of the 20th century, Rouault was born in Paris on May 27, 1871.
