Henri Rousseau at the Orsay Museum
I would like now to invite you to the Orsay museum and start together a nice visit. Until the 17th of July 2016 stands the exhibition : an archaic candour. It is a collection of major paintings of the artist Henri Rousseau also known as ‘le douanier Rousseau’.
As an architect I choose to offer authentics and also private artistic creations. When I lost my inspiration I remember ‘Le Douanier Rousseau’as his style turned into a huge reference in the Artistic’s World. Through ‘Le Douanier Rousseau’ ‘s masterpieces the Candid Art has been brought up to date.
A painter's life
I thought a lot about the life of Henri Rousseau. He decided to become an Artist at the age of 40, which was a risky gamble. The age is nothing but a number and the strengh of conviction only matters to release a masterpiece. Sometimes it is hard for an artist to handle criticism and pressure but the essential remains and helps the artist to achieve an timeless artistic’s work. In a dreamlike and exotic atmosphere you will be enchanted by amazing paintings.
The work of Henri Rousseau became completely a real source of inspiration especially to the Surrealism Movement. Like ‘Le Douanier Rousseau’ I wish I could become a reference for several generations of designers to come.
The famous poet Apollinaire used to say: Henri Rousseau is the most mysterious, audacious and charming ambassador of exotism painting »
I let you think about that,
See you soon,
