Christ
A man with deeply held Catholic beliefs, Rouault painted numerous religious subjects, some with
immense force. He wrote "this instinctive movement, this turn of the helm, it was not the influence of
Toulouse Lautrec, of Degas or the moderns that inspired me, but the innate need and maybe unconcious
desire not to fall, at length, into conventional religious subjects".
