Myself - Henri Rousseau

Henri Rousseau glorifies himself in this self-portrait, which he calls "landscape portrait". Halfway between the two, he depicts himself full-length, disproportionately large in relation to the landscape elements behind him. Considering himself to be ahead of his time in terms of painting, he incorporates into his setting obvious markers of modernity for his time: a metal bridge, the Eiffel Tower and the hot air balloon in the sky.

L'œuvre en bref

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.
