Event description

Description

Still Point presents Seeing in the Darkness, an exhibition of works by French artist Georges Rouault (1871–1958) from his Miserere series, etchings from his Fleurs du Mal I series, color aquatint works from The Passion and Fleurs du Mal III series and other intaglio prints. The graphic art in this exhibition, done at the height of the artist's career, shows how deeply the artist identified with peoples' sufferings and, indeed, saw within this darkness something with which to grapple.

Join us for a public reception June 2, 2018 from 7-9 pm with Philippe Rouault, great-grandson of artist Georges Rouault. Admission is free. RSVP required.

About the Artist

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.
