Georges Rouault. The Sacred and the Profane
From the coming 15th of November to the 13th of February 2011, the "Georges Rouault. The Sacred and the Profane" Exhibition containing 156 works of art, including oil paintings, etchings and even one of the artist´s stained glass windows, will allow visitors to discover one of the most outstanding artists of the XX century for themselves. In spite of the fact that some of the artist´s most important works such as Parade (c. 1907-1910), L´apprenti-ouvrier (1925), Veronique (1945) and the Miserere series of etchings (of which the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum has 4 prints) will be on display, the Exhibition cannot be considered a conventional Retrospective as such. Its originality resides in its exhibiting a fair number of hitherto unknown and unfinished works from Rouaul´s studio - to which the artist rarely granted access - that his wife, Marthe Rouault, donated to France in 1963.
