Rouault “achieved striking effects in his prints by unothodox means, mixing techniques and tools and sometimes working by hand a plate onto which his original gouache sketch had been photographed” (Artist and the Book, 179). His Stella Vespertina is one of the great personal views on the subject of artistic intention. In it Rouault reflects that “the conscience of an artist worthy of the name is like an incurable disease which causes him endless torment but occasionally fills him with silent joy.”
