The sleeping Gypsy - Henri Rousseau

Amazing to see a lion in a desert setting, isn't it? This naive painting, imagined by Henri Rousseau, does not lack disturbing elements. A lion, with exaggeratedly wide eyes, occupies the central place of the painting and comes to sniff a lying gypsy woman, with confusing pink hair. The moon, wearing a human face, seems to contemplate the scene while sprinkling the work with delicate reflections. This soft nocturnal luminosity gives the painting a poetic dreamlike atmosphere.

The artist

Henri Rousseau (1844 - 1910) was born in Laval in a modest environment. Nicknamed "Le Douanier" because of his profession, he painted in his free time. Self-taught, he tried to exhibit his work at the Salon Officiel but his paintings were rejected by a mocking jury, who qualified his paintings as clumsy, naive and primitive. While his contemporaries called him an amateur, he considered himself an innovator who broke the established codes. He swears that the naivety present in his works was acquired by his "persistent work". It was in 1884, thanks to the Salon des Indépendants, without jury or reward, that he finally exhibited and found his public. Portraits, cityscapes, exotic landscapes, Rousseau died, lonely and penniless, leaving behind a wide range of works.
