Carnival Evening 1886
A mysterious painting in that the main figures being highlighted in the art work are very much in contrast to their dark and dreary background. Looking at the painting, it would seem like the characters are actually shining from within instead of reflecting the light coming from the moon.
It is among Rousseaus many paintings that feature fantastic scenes that appealed to many collectors and artists, including Pablo Picasso.
An oddly moving piece that grabs the attention of the audience.
The Sleeping Gypsy
The mayor of the artists home town wouldnt buy it…but now it hangs in the Museum of Modern art. Dont miss your chance!
A dreamy, surreal scene that sparks the imagination and conversation!
Been referenced in movies and TV (including most notably The Simpsons)
