Henri Rousseau (1844-1910)
|Le Rêve (The Dream)|
Henri Julien Félix Rousseau, known as le douanier Rousseau (the Customs officer Rousseau) was a French post-impressionist artist of the Primitive school, who painted many jungle pictures though he never visited a jungle in his life, getting his inspiration from the menagerie of animals at the jardin d'Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne in Paris.
