Henri Rousseau - French Naïve Post-Impressionist

New Pattern Set for SegPlayPC recently released (see more details here)

Henri Rousseau (1844-1910) was a French Post-Impressionist painter who work is characterized by the term “Naïve” which implies art without a formal training or degree. Rousseau was only recognized for his self-taught generous after years of criticism for his non-serious, childish art style. One of his more popular scenes is that of jungles, yet he never left his native France to see one in person. A particular style that he invented is that of a portrait landscape which combines a view of a favorite part of the city and then adding a person into the foreground. Our pattern set of Rousseau contains many of his well-know works including “The Snake Charmer”, “The Dream”, “The Football Players”, “Malakoff”, “Tiger in a Tropical Storm”, “The Flamingoes”, “Boy on the Rocks”, and two self portraits.

This set contains 27 paintable patterns.
