Georges Rouault (French, 1871-1958)


In 1936, Rouault began a project for Vollard to illustrate Les Fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil), a volume of poems on decadence and eroticism written by Charles Baudelaire in 1857.

Rouault created twelve aquatints in color working with the printer Roger Lacourière.  The book was never finished and the aquatints were issued separately by the printer in 1945.
