French post-impressionist master Henri Rousseau’s work is defined by a distinctive vibrancy and vividness, a style that has captivated art historian Cornelia Stabenow and inspired this book.
Claiming he had “no teacher other than nature”, his bold paintings of exotic florals and fauna initially received ridicule from critics during his lifetime. However, the lush and languid sensuality demonstrated in works such as The Dream soon achieved acclaim from Picasso, the Surrealists and long beyond.
Tracing his rise to pioneering artist, this concise and dependable book is Stabenow’s exploration of how Rousseau overcame criticism and cemented himself in the history of art as an unexpected icon of modernism.
