Centuries of Art @ Your Library - Armchair Adventures: Henri Rousseau and His Fantastical Landscapes

Series: Centuries of Art@Your Library

Armchair Adventures: Henri Rousseau and His Fantastical Landscapes

Jeffrey Allison, Paul Mellon Collection Educator, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

Jeffrey 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 critics ridiculed his work, but now his paintings are among the most popular works produced in the 20th century.

Now beginning its 11th season, Centuries of Art @ Your Library is a partnership between This Century Art Gallery, Williamsburg Regional Library and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA).  These programs have been organized by VMFA Statewide and are supported by the Paul Mellon Endowment.
