Henri Rousseau (May 21, 1844 – September 2, 1910)
Emerging from the same time period as the Cubists in France, Rousseau strove to create his own version of art. Although he didn’t start painting until his forties, he created a body of work that is still relished for its originality. His paintings featured lush forest scenes, along with paintings using figures with a folk style, which was unique for the time. Considered a precursor to Surrealist art, Rousseau’s art was a hallmark for many of the future art movements.
