In the Mood for… Rousseau – The Dream


In the Mood for… Rousseau – The Dream (acrylic on canvas)

This weekend I finished my latest painting!

It´s inspired by the painting “The Dream” by the french painter Henri Rousseau (1844-1910), a post-impressionist who taught himself to paint and was tragically ridiculed by critics for his naïve manner during his lifetime.

“The Dream” (1910) was his final painting and can now be admired at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. If you do not want to travel so far though, you can have a look at it here😉
