"Hi - my name is Rebecca, and I work at Artsy. While researching Henri Rousseau, I found your page: http://lumnicernoverek.blogspot.com/2011/05/.
I am reaching out to certain website and blog owners that publish content in line with our mission to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone. We hope to continue promoting arts education and accessibility with your help.

Henri Julien Félix Rousseau (May 21, 1844 -- September 2, 1910) was a French Post-Impressionist painter in the Naive or Primitive manner. He was also known as Le Douanier (the customs officer) after his place of employment. Rousseau started painting seriously in his early forties, and by age 49 he retired from his job to work on his art full-time. Ridiculed during his life, he came to be recognized as a self-taught genius whose works are of high artistic quality. He claimed he had "no teacher other than nature". His best known paintings depict jungle scenes, even though he never left France or saw a jungle.
Rousseau exhibited his final painting, The Dream, at the 1910 Salon des Independants a few months before his death. At his funeral, seven friends stood at his grave: the painters Paul Signac and Manuel Ortiz de Zarate, the artist couple Robert Delaunay and Sonia Terk, the sculptor Brancusi, Rousseau's landlord Armand Queval and Guillaume Apollinaire, the Italian-born French poet, who wrote the epitaph Brancusi put on the tombstone:
We salute you Gentle Rousseau you can hear us.
Delaunay, his wife, Monsieur Queval and myself.
Let our luggage pass duty free through the gates of heaven.
We will bring you brushes paints and canvas.
That you may spend your sacred leisure in the
light and Truth of Painting.
As you once did my portrait facing the stars, lion and the gypsy.
