Schnormeier Gallery to Host the Work of Georges Rouault

Press Release

August 19, 2015 -9:21 AM

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio--MVNU's Schnormeier Gallery will host the work of Georges Rouault in an exhibition entitled "Seeing Christ in the Darkness." The exhibition will be on display from Aug. 20 through Nov. 6, 2015. The opening reception will take place on Friday, Sept. 4, from 6-9 p.m. This event and the exhibition in the gallery are free and open to the public.

Georges Rouault (1871 - 1958) is an exception among modern artists. Deeply religious, his works resist traditional depictions of Christian themes, instead emphasizing the suffering and anguish he observed in the impoverished neighborhoods of his native Paris. The graphic works displayed in this exhibition, completed at the height of his artistic abilities, reveal how deeply Rouault identified with human suffering and how he saw within this darkness a hope for salvation.

This exhibition will focus on Rouault's work as a printmaker. It was within his graphic work that his religious vision took shape. The majority of the works in this exhibition are from his Miserere series. Begun during World War I and finished by 1927, the images were first drawn in India ink and later reproduced as engravings. The plates were refined over the course of years, being finally published in a limited edition in 1948. Also included in this exhibition are works from his Passion series, published in 1939.
