Henri Rousseau was a post-impressionist painter from France. He used a variety of elements in each painting from magazines to other paintings to photographs. He established a career as a tax collector and consequently, didn't begin his painting career until he was in his forties. Rousseau was never professionally taught and was considered to be a primitive or naive painter. Many of Rousseau's paintings depict jungle scenes even though he never actually left France.
A self-taught French painter who inspired the Paris avant garde in the late 19th century, Henri Rousseau's portraits and landscapes are available as reproductions from overstockArt. These post-impressionist works, which frequently convey an unsophisticated innocence, have all their original vivid colors, ambiguous spaces non-realistic scale and dramatic intensity faithfully reproduced in hand-painted detail on canvas and can be customized with a frame of your choice. Some of the available dreamlike works of Rousseau available at overstockArt include The Sleeping Gypsy, A Carnival Evening, Woman Walking in an Exotic Forest, Surprise, The Dream, Bankes of The Oise, Snake Charmer and Eclaireurs Attaques par un Tigre. Many of Rousseau's works incorporated details inspired by paintings he had viewed at museums or images he had seen in books and magazines. Now his works can be yours, and at a fraction of what you'd pay at a gallery, when you order from overstockArt.
I recently discovered this company and have already purchased several pieces with the intent of buying more in the near future. Having been a manager of a fine art gallery, I know exceptional artwork when I see it and overstockArt has beautiful offerings.
I've purchased quite a few reproductions and always had great pieces arrive. This last purchase however there was ever so slight damage to the top of the frame. I called and it was picked up by FedEx the next day. Very kind, professional, and easy process. Thank you, I'll continue to order my art through you folks!
We ordered the Luxury Line version of Van Gogh's Cafe Terrace and we love it! It's well done, retaining the details of the original but with a little added flair from the gold paint on the stars and windows. If I didn't know better, I would swear this painting adds light to our room at night. I'm very happy with this purchase!
I love overstockArt. I have purchased 5 paintings from them over the years and love them all. Beautiful work, great prices, and quality customer service.
The paintings I received were exceptional in quality and the service staff were more than helpful with helping me arrange my orders. Will buy more in the future!
I ordered this painting to hang above the bed in the bedroom. It is more gorgeous than on the screen. The gold and the colors are so vibrant, the passion of this painting is amazing. Absolutely love my purchase. Arrived quickly and nicely packed with no damage. Very happy with my purchase!
The quality of the piece we ordered was nothing short of perfect, it is perfect quality and will be the center of our dining room for years to come!
Gorgeous painting. Lots of texture. Gold foil on the luxury line adds a great effect. Highly recommended.
This is outstanding. Not only does it have the gorgeous gold foiled accents, but the texture and amount of paint on the canvas is absolutely superb. Brush strokes look amazing, colors are vivid. This is a real treat in my kitchen area. Falling in love with each order I make, but this one has really caught my attention.
This looks gorgeous in our home. Goes well in every room we tested it in.
