Henri Rousseau The Dream Invitations
Henri Rousseau The Dream invitations. Oil painting on canvas from 1910. Henri Rousseau’s most famous jungle painting, The Dream is a vibrant work depicting Rousseau’s teanage love Yadwigha lying on a divan in the middle of the jungle surrounded by large blue and red lotus flowers. A snake charmer plays a reed flute, and monkeys, birds, lions, snakes and elephants calmly respond to his tune. Fruit hangs in the branches of the dark green trees above. A beautiful gift for fans of Henri Rousseau, the jungle paintings, post-impressionism, and French art.
