Henri Rousseau

Thanks to one of those silly FB games I’ve learn about Henri Rousseau. And I’m glad I did. Rousseau was a post-impressionist painter of the late XIX century (thanks wikipedia).

Apparently he was scorned in life, and I can kinda see why: at first glance his paintings may seem like children’s drawings. But look again, they are certainly not.


He was also good with colour. I find “The snake enchantress” misterious and alluring.


You should check his other paintings. For instance one with modern (for his time) topics, like an iron bridge (surely Le pont des arts).















Let’s end this with some good music. Click here.
