Rouault Stain Glass Portraits





DISCUSSION: 
Portrait: drawing of the face
Go over the face and where things fall on the face
Proportion
Complementary Colors? what are they? where do we find them?
what do they create in a work of art?
ARTIST: GEORGES ROUAULT (born May 27, 1871-Feb. 13, 1958, Paris) 
French painter.
His apprenticeship in a glazier's shop restoring medieval stained glass (1885 – 90) influenced his mature style as a painter. 
After an early academic period, his style evolved toward Fauvism before he established a highly personal form of Expressionism
An ardent Roman Catholic, he painted subjects apparently fallen from grace tragic clowns, and pitiless judges. 
After 1914 his subject matter became more specifically religious, with greater emphasis on redemption, 
He shifted from watercolor to oil. 
His layers of paint became thick and rich, his forms simplified, and his colors and black lines reminiscent of stained glass.
In the 1930s he produced a splendid series on Christ's Passion, while reworking many earlier paintings. 
His series of clowns in the 1940s are virtual self-portraits. 
He also produced many engravings as well as ceramics, tapestry designs, and stained glass.
