Disabled following an injury and described as a simple man, Georges Roger lives in Paris in the mid-1940s, selling posters. Attracted by the art world, he teaches himself how to paint in oils. The work preserved in the Collection de l’Art Brut is a portrait of a chaouch, a term used in North Africa to designate an employee or servant.
