Description

Set the mood in your home or office with this Philadelphia Museum of Art exclusive archival poster of The Merry Jesters (1906), by Henri-Julien-Félix Rousseau [French, 1844 - 1910]. 

His best-known paintings depict jungle scenes, even though he never left France or saw a jungle. His inspiration came from illustrations in children's books and the botanical gardens in Paris, as well as tableaux of taxidermy wild animals.

Known for his fantastic scenes, Rousseau was a self-taught artist whose works appealed to the collectors and avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century, including Pablo Picasso.
