      //Georges Rouault//



      • Known as: French Fauvist and Expressionist painter
      • Born: 27 May 1871, Paris, France
      • Birthname: Georges Henri Rouault
      • Date of death: 13 February 1958, Paris



    • Georges Rouault entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1891 after completing an apprenticeship in stained-glass window making. From 1892 to 1895 he was a pupil of Gustave Moreau (1826-98). On Moreau's death he became the first curator of the Musee Moreau.

      The influence of Moreau on his early works is apparent, but by 1903 he had abandoned his oil-paintings of biblical subjects for the series of Prostitutes, Clowns (from 1904, 1907, and again during the 1930s) and Judges (from 1908).

      He remained aloof from all artistic groups and systems though he did exhibit at the Fauve show in 1905. Gradually he develpoed his unique form of what coul be called Expressionism.

      He worked mostly in watercolour and gouache before 1908, and, ten years later, returned to oil painting. He also completed a large amount of graphic work.

      He worked for the Diaghilev Ballet in 1929. In 1933, he executed tapestry cartoons. In 1945, he designed stained-glass windows for the church of Plateau d'Assy (Haute Savoie).
