Georges Henri Rouault was born in Paris, France. He was a French expressionist painter, whose work is often associated with Fauvism and Expressionism. During his apprenticeship, he also attended evening classes at the School of Fine Arts, and in 1891, he entered the École des Beaux-Arts, the official art school of France. There he studied under Gustave Moreau and became his favorite student. In 1907, he commenced a series of paintings dedicated to courts, clowns and prostitutes. These paintings are interpreted as moral and social criticism. In 1910, he had his first works exhibited in the Druet Gallery. In 1930 he also began to exhibit in foreign countries, mainly in London, New York and Chicago. In 1937, he painted "The Old King", arguably his very finest expressionist work.
