Rookmaaker on Georges Rouault, French Painter
"Rouault shows that another kind of art is possible. It is an art which is a positive answer to absurdity and surrealism and existentialism. Yet it does not show the rosy sentimentality, more humanistic than human, that so much of so-called Christian art has produced."--Hans Rookmaaker, Art and the Death of a Culture.
