Henri Rousseau was a French Post-Impressionist painter, known for his primitive and naive style paintings. He is often referred to as "Le Douanier" (the Customs officer) because he worked as a toll collector for the French government for most of his life. Despite having little formal training, Rousseau developed a unique and highly individual style, characterized by flat, brightly colored shapes, bold outlines, and a lack of perspective. He is best known for his jungle scenes, which are populated with exotic animals and plants and often depict a dream-like and fantastical world. He is considered an important precursor of the Surrealist movement. He died in 1910.
