Georges Rouault (1871-1958) occupies a unique place amongst twentieth century artists. A contemporary of Cubism, Expressionism, and Fauvism, he never aspired to belong to any one of these movements. Often categorized as a religious painter, he was, above all, independent. He did not find his inspiration in an abstract way, but rather in observing real life as much as the highest form of spirituality. Georges Rouault was a painter who did not need religious subjects in order for his work to be stamped with the characteristics of holiness.
