Recognized as one of the greatest narrators of art, his visceral and disturbing works were often inspired by folklore. A longtime London resident, she was named Lady in 2010.

Masterpiece of the week

Surprised!  Author: Henri Rousseau
Photo: The National Gallery Photographic Department / The National Gallery, London
The “jungle” in this painting exists in Rousseau’s mind to shape colors. It is an abstract creation, a vivid dance of green and red and bulbous and tubular geometry, all created by a desire rather than observation. This was revolutionary because in 1891 artists were expected to study nature up close instead of flying to themselves. But the “naive” artist Rousseau was untrained, and other modernists laughed at his innocent nature. It’s more evil, rather than making fun of a banquet for him in Picasso’s studio, than celebrating this part-time painter. He has the last laugh in this immortal masterpiece. The mad look of the tiger, the glow of the leaf in the electricity of a storm, the gummy textures of the leaves, all add to its hallucinatory magic. Art for all, adults and children alike, is a vision that will never be dated.
National Gallery, London.
