Henri Rousseau

AND SOMEHOW HE WAS

Rousseau, the French naif voted himself well above his old friend Picasso as the best living painter in the whole wide world 

Monkeys in orange groves, lion-eating-gardenias, tiger wanting a woman’s body, jealous lover bear-eating men……all jammed-up-frightening-things to be prudishly covered up by the widest palm leafs available in one’s regular heart of darkness backyard.  Rousseau’s work reverberates my own love of the great tropics where for me, Brazil reigns as king.  So here is to Brazil’s best; the Campana Brothers and their oh-too-well-informed tropical naivity and to everything else that seems to follow from Sao Paulo to LA…. all the way up to little freezing me.
