Georges Rouault

Pointless to write a biographical note of one of the most famous artists of the twentieth century. This is the only work in the museum that is not contemporary, at least in the chronological sense of the term: the strength of its lines and its representation of the human being makes this print appear to have great similarities with the prints and drawings of Daniel Erban. The print drawn from Miserere is entitled Parfois l’aveugle a consolé le voyant (sometimes the blind consoled the seeing) and that connects it with the spirit of the museum that invites us to have an inner experience as opposed to cultural consumption. The artists exhibited are blind to external reality, an often painful blindness, and that is what allows them to offer visions of their inner experience.

L’aveugle a parfois consolé le voyant. In Miserere.
