Extract

The impediments encountered on the path to artistic celebrity status for Henri Rousseau (1844-1910) would have deterred anyone of lesser determination, but a painter he wanted to be, and despite poverty, age, and lack of training, he would not be denied. A Rousseau motif came to include a colorful kaleidoscope of tigers, lions, and exotic flora that he brought to life on canvas. A modicum of patience was needed before he saw his dream gain the momentum that occurred around the time of his 1905 exhibition of The Hungry Lion Throws Itself on the Antelope. His jewel-like jungle scenes offer an incomparable excursion for the imagination.
