Catalogue Note

Much of Rouault's work remained indebted to his apprenticeship with glaziers as a teenager. The artist retained an enduring passion for this craft, and the juxtaposition of the vibrant greens, yellows and reds and the use of heavy contours resembling lead tracery reflect his early training. Rouault returns to the craft with the present work, a design for a stained-glass window executed by Jean Herbert-Stevens in 1939.
