WAM to Showcase the Work of Georges Rouault this Month

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

 

The Worcester Art Museum will soon be home to the work of one of the greatest French artists of the twentieth century. Georges Rouault's images are simplistic, yet capture deep emotions, seemingly with ease.

Rouault (1871-1958) began his artistic career as an apprentice stained-glass painter, but by his early 20's was already a pupil of well known painter Gustave Moreau. He would go on to create some of the most memorable works of his generation.

At around the turn of the century, Rouault began experimenting with vivd watercolors to depict clowns, businessmen and different figures in the legal system. The exhibition at Worcester Art Museum will showcase prints from its permanent collection, all done between 1917 and 1948.

His piece "Who Doesn't Put on a Face?" (pictured) from 1922 captures the haunting, yet simple image of a man clearly dealing with some emotional turmoil. It is just one of the many examples of Rouault showcasing emotion in its simplest form.

The exhibition is set to open this Saturday, December 22nd, and will run through March 14th of next year. For more information, click here.
