Responding to Rouault: USD Student Selections from the Hoehn Gift

On View:

November 16 – December 15, 2017
Humanities Center Gallery
Serra Hall

Thanks to the generosity of Karen and Robert Hoehn, USD has been home to a complete set of Georges Rouault’s landmark print series, Miserere (1922-27), since 2001.  While these 58 etchings have been shown on campus on numerous occasions since their donation, never before have undergraduates been solely responsible for their interpretation.  This fall, students enrolled in creative writing courses taught by Halina Duraj and Brad Melekian were given a chance to respond to Rouault’s monumental representations about war, grief, and spirit.  Their responses reflect the profundity of the images and hold out the promise of new insights into this much-admired print cycle.

Gallery Hours:

Monday - Friday: noon - 5:00pm
