Rousseau

The great masters of painting
Henri Rousseau is generally considered representative of the naive painters. The exoticism abounds in his work even if Rousseau almost never left Paris. Its exoticism is imaginary and stylized from the Jardin des Plantes, the zoological gardens, illustrated magazines and botanical magazines of the time. He was accused his portraits of opposite characters frozen, his lack of perspective, vivid colors, his naivety and clumsiness, but his paintings, on the border between reality and fiction, civilization and the wild, nonetheless provide some fascinating for those who observe them.
