Henri Rousseau


French artist Henri Rousseau, is mostly known for his richly-coloured and detailed paintings of lush jungles with wild beasts and exotic flowers - however he never left France. The inspiration for his paintings came from illustrated books, and visits to the local arboretum and museum where he studied plants and animals.
