  • Description

    Georges Rouault, the contemporary French painter, who died recently was buried in Paris. With his death, the world of painting lost one of its most striking exponents of tragic and religious art. Known widely as the Monk of French Painting, Rouault was said to have captured much of his own early struggles and privations in his sombre canvasses. His religious 'Miserere' was widely acclaimed for its tremendous pathos. Its form broke right away from the old and popular 'sugary' conception of religious art. A man who shunned publicity, Rouault left only these few scenes on film of himself with some of his works.
