Henri Rousseau in Washington

Henri Rousseau - Tropical Forest with Monkeys (1910)
Henri's getting about lately. His exhibition Jungles in Paris was the best thing Tate Modern has shown in a long time. The exhibition has now moved to the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, and continues until 15 October. This is its only showing in the USA.

Ah Henri Rousseau; whenever I see the Maurice Sendak books I think of Henri Rousseau.

Did you know Spike Jonze is making the "Where the Wild Things Are" movie? Should be good.

Whenever I see Rousseau's sinister archer in the forest, I think of my old school. There was a print between the main hall and my classroom. It sends shivers down my spine every time!
Is that the children's book with the cuddly/scary monsters? Sounds interesting, but can they get the graphics right?
