Henri Rousseau's A Centennial of Independence is a painting created in 1892. It is an oil on canvas work measuring 218.4 cm x 301.6 cm, depicting a grand celebration of the 100th anniversary of Mexico's independence from Spain. The painting features a large, bustling parade in the streets of Mexico City, with a variety of floats, banners, and performers on display. The figures in the painting are shown in a variety of costumes, representing different aspects of Mexican culture and history.  Rousseau's naive style of painting is evident in the work, with bold colors and strong lines used to create a lively and festive composition. The parade route is lined with buildings and palm trees, creating a sense of depth and perspective. The central focus of the painting is a large float, featuring a group of costumed figures on horseback. The float is decorated with flowers and banners, and the riders are depicted in intricate and detailed costumes. The figures on the float are surrounded by a group of musicians, adding to the festive atmosphere of the painting. The painting is notable for its use of light and shadow, with the bright sunlight filtering through the palm trees and casting dappled shadows on the ground. The overall effect is one of excitement and celebration, as the viewer is drawn into the spectacle and energy of the parade. Henri Rousseau's A Centennial of Independence has become an iconic image of Mexico's history and culture and is now housed in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, where it remains a popular attraction for visitors from around the world.
