Happy Birthday to Henri Rousseau

Today is the 170th  birthday of French painter and Post-Impressionist mastermind, Henri Rousseau. Best known for his fanciful jungle landscapes and primitivist works.

Extraordinarily, Rousseau never actually saw the tropical scenes as he never left France. His exotic jungle paintings are the fantasies of a city dweller.
