This is "Bamboula," a plate from Ambroise Vollard's "Les Réincarnations du Père Ubu" created by artist Georges Henri Rouault via etching, aquatint, roulette, burnishing and drypoint (located at booth T-360). Rouault created 22 illustrations for the book, which he completed in 1928, and his dramatic visual style is one of a kind.

Rouault was born in 1873 to a poor Parisian family, yet he was able to study at the École des Beaux-Arts, then ultimately met Henri Matisse, Albert Marquet and other artists who introduced him to the Fauvist movement. The influence of Fauvism and European Expressionism can be seen in his work.
