About the Artist:
Henri Julien Félix Rousseau, was a self-taught painter, completely untrained in any established art techniques. He started painting seriously at the age of forty and by the time he was 49 he retired from his job in order to paint full time."His amateurish technique and unusual compositions provoked the derision of contemporary critics, while earning the respect and admiration of modern artists like Pablo Picasso and Wassily Kandinsky for revealing "the new possibilities of simplicity."" He is best known for his naïve, or primitive, childlike jungle scenes. He spent most of his life in the profession of a customs officer at the outskirts of town. Because of this, he was also referred to as Le Douarneir, or the “Customs Officer.”
