From Library Journal
At a time when the post-impressionists were reacting to Impressionism, the self-taught Henri Rousseau was creating dream-fantasy paintings in his uniquely primitive style a style that influenced artists from Pablo Picasso to Blaue Reiters Franz Marc and Wassily Kandinsky. This volume, which is part of a series of catalogs of retrospective exhibitions held in Tubingen, Germany, on modern artists such as Cezanne and Degas, accompanies the first major show of Rousseau's work in Germany since 1933.

Book Description
Henri Rousseau (1844-1910) was a self-taught artist with a unique style, exemplified in his visionary jungle scenes. These dream-like tableaux, for which he drew heavily on visits to Paris' Botanical Gardens, captivate with the lushness of their plant and animal life, while unsettling the viewer with their heady combination of exoticism and romanticism. This sumptuously illustrated book provides not only a comprehensive overview of Rousseau's career, but also penetrating insights into his inspiration. With large, color reproductions of his paintings, many previously unpublished illustrations of his sources and influences, and a wealth of new research on his life and work (including the only interview conducted with the artist), Henri Rousseau: Jungles in Paris is poised to become the definitive volume on this...

Biographical information reveals the importance the natural world played in Rousseau’s...

Book Description
Henri Rousseau's famous 1908 jungle painting Fight Between a Tiger and a Buffalo is presented through the windowed format of this appealing cousin of the pop-up book—the tunnel book. Following the tradition of the paper peep show, sturdy covers support the two ends of an accordion-pleated paper tube that can be stretched out to provide a three-dimensional view of Rousseau's flora and fauna, including snakes in the trees and tigers ready to pounce, all layered in paper cutouts faithfully reproduced from the painting. A 16-page book providing an introduction to the self-taught French painter and his fantastical canvases is also included.


Interpreting Henri Rousseau

Paperback

Book Description
Henri Rousseau (1844-1910) is at once one of the most popular and most enigmatic of artists. "Interpreting" his work was no less difficult for his contemporaries than it is for us today. Different accounts of his life and art make him out to be either the starting point for modernism or a naïve, "primitive" artist, cut off from the world around him. What was it about his paintings that fascinated contemporaries like Picasso and the Surrealists? And what was it about his personality and social status that meant he never became part of the avant-garde? Revealing some of the truths behind the myths, Interpreting Henri Rousseau is richly illustrated throughout.

From School Library Journal
Gr 5-9--These three titles investigate aspects of the artists' careers as seen through the eyes of modern preteen characters. Thus, along with pages of specific facts, readers are given lots of fictional conversations and situations. The illustrations are varied: full-color reproductions of paintings, photographs of artists and related scenes, and cartoons. Many of the reproductions are tiny and placed in the wide margins on either side of the text, often with descriptive captions. The frenetic impression created by the volumes' scattershot design makes sequential reading difficult. Nevertheless, there is considerable information about each artist, and an attempt is made to include tidbits about relevant historical events and places as well. The books demand several readings to extract all the material...
