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.
Awesome site that allows you to choose your rooms paint color and then displays the painting on that wall. Brings the painting you choose into perspective. I love this feature!
So happy with my purchase! It looks great, came very quickly and without any issue. Very happy with my first purchase from Overstock Art!
I ordered The Kiss for my wife and she absolutely loves it. The Luxury Line version on this painting has the additional textures and depth which really bring this painting to life. The website recommended frames that would match the painting and their choice was spot on. Very happy with my purchase!
Dance at Bougival is one of my favorite Renoir paintings. I had a cheap print but this one on canvas gives me so much joy. I just love it!
