The Snake Charmer - Henri Rousseau

The subject of this work is thus born in the mind of Henri Rousseau from a story and an environment that he transposes very freely while using Western myths: the earthly paradise, the good savage. The exuberant vegetation, inspired by real varieties but arranged according to the fantasy of the painter, constitutes a dreamlike image of the jungle. The style of this work is new: frank and dense colors, backlighting, a line both naive and precise, a vertical composition, an innovative asymmetry.

L'œuvre en bref

The subject of this work is thus born in the mind of Henri Rousseau from a story and an environment that he transposes very freely while using Western myths: the earthly paradise, the good savage. The exuberant vegetation, inspired by real varieties but arranged according to the fantasy of the painter, constitutes a dreamlike image of the jungle. The style of this work is new: frank and dense colors, backlighting, a line both naive and precise, a vertical composition, an innovative asymmetry.

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.
