Armchair Adventures: Henri Rousseau and His Fantastical Landscapes

Request Program

Join Jeffrey Allison, Paul Mellon Collection Educator and Manager, Statewide Programs and Exhibitions, as he explores the unique life and work of the French artist, Henri Rousseau. The essentially self-taught painter created cityscapes and portraits as well as dream-like exotic jungle scenes without stepping out of the city. During his lifetime his work was ridiculed by critics, but now his paintings are among the most popular works produced in the 20th century.
