Georges Rouault: L'Automne

  • In the late 1880s, Rouault had trained as an apprentice with a glass painter and restorer and, in the early 1890s, studied at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, under the symbolist master, Gustave Moreau (1826-1898). Both these experiences certainly influenced his style, as did his friendships at the turn-of-the-century with some of the leading Fauves, including Henri Matisse, Albert Marquet and Henri Manguin.

    This work is Rouault's tour-de-force and a secular stand-out in a printmaking oeuvre with a concentration on religious, spiritual, and Biblical themes. This work was undoubtedly inspired by Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907).
