This is an original etching and aquatint from 1922. Unsigned. Plate 19 from Miserere: Son avocat, et phrases creuses, clame sa totale inconscience. Plate measures 21 x 16 inches in a silver 30 x 24 1/2 inch frame. Georges Rouault began his art career at age fourteen, when he began a five year apprenticeship painting and restoring glass. This appears to have had a heavy influence on his cloisonnist style, with the heavy black contouring and glowing colors resembling leaded glass. He began attending evening classes during this apprenticeship and in 1891 entered the École des Beaux-Arts, where he studied under Gustave Moreau. A devout Roman Catholic, his work was often religious, exploring themes of sin and redemption. Rouault is often associated with the Fauvist and Expressionist movements.
