Gallery displays collection of works by notable Expressionist artist
“Seeing Christ in the Darkness” is the theme of a new exhibit at Fuller featuring the art of painter and printmaker Georges Rouault. Sponsored by the Brehm Center's Visual Faith Institute, the gallery is being hosted at the David Allan Hubbard Library at the south end of Fuller’s campus.
Georges Rouault (1871–1958) was an eminent French Fauvist and Expressionist artist, primarily a painter, working alongside such notable artists as Henri Matisse. Influenced by an early apprenticeship working in stained and leaded glass, Rouault painted with a distinct style that was reminiscent of stained glass windows.
Rouault dedicated a large proportion of his art to religious subjects, with the Christian faith strongly informing his work. His contributions to the 20th century art world were powerful and significant.
The “Seeing Christ in the Darkness” exhibit is on display at the Hubbard Library from October 6 through October 30. It is open to the public, and can be viewed during normal library opening hours:
Monday-Thursday: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Friday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The David Allan Hubbard Library is located at the corner of Union Street and Oakland Avenue, in Pasadena.
