About

Obéissant jusqu' à la morte et à la morte de la croix." (Phillippians 2.8). ("Obedient unto death, and to death on the cross.") 1923. Original etching with aquatint and mixed techniques over heliogravure in black ink. Chapon/Rouault 110b. 22 3/16 x 17 (sheet 25 5/8 x 19 3/4). Series: Miserere, plate 57. Intended for issue by Vollard c.1930 but not in fact issued until 1948. Printed by Jacquemin, published by Édition de L'Étoile Filante, Paris. Paris. in an edition of 425 (there were also 25 hors commerce copies). Printed on Arches laid paper, with the watermark Ambroise Vollard, with full margins and deckle edges. Signed and dated in the plate lower left. (No impressions in the published edition were pencil signed). Housed in a dramatic 32 x 25-inch silver wood frame. Arguably one of the greatest religious artists of the 20th-century, Georges Rouault (1871–1958) helped revive the relevance of Christianity in post-WWI France. As a young man, Rouault served as an apprentice restorer of stained glass at Saint-Séverin, a gothic church in the heart of Paris. He went on to study with Gustave Moreau, known for his illustrations of biblical and mythological figures. Under Moreau’s tutelage, Rouault learned to harness the power of spiritual symbols in his own artwork. Rouault’s Miserere (Mercy) series, first titled Miserere et Guerre (Mercy and War), was commissioned in 1916 by art dealer Ambroise Vollard (1865–1939). Originally planned as a two-volume book comprised of 50 prints each, Miserere was only partially realized — with 58 prints published in 1948. The series illustrates man’s cruelty to man, relates human suffering to the passion of Christ, and speaks to the redemption and salvation that can be achieved through that experience. In Miserere, Rouault makes recurring use of sacramental symbols and devotional imagery originating in the Middle Ages. By fusing early Catholic spiritual truths with his own experiences in 20th-century France, Rouault creates uniquely modern religious narratives.
