Henri Rousseau by Götz Adriani( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henri Rousseau, called 'Le Douanier' because of his early career with the French customs service, is one of the most important, fascinating and least studied of late nineteenth-century artists. His determined and unapologetic primitivism distanced his work from most of his contemporaries, but he was widely admired by Picasso, Apollinaire and Kandinsky, and is now seen as one of the pioneers of the modern movement. This book offers a detailed portrait of Rousseau's life and career as well as sensitive interpretations of his unusual, individualistic art."--Jacket

Henri Rousseau : dreams of the jungle by Werner Schmalenbach( Book )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rousseau's series of jungle paintings was and still continues to be the subject of controversy. This book answers many of the questions surrounding Rousseau's importance as an artist and examines his paintings in a wider art-historical context. As a self-taught artist who started painting at the age of 40 and worked in an unorthodox, naive style, Rousseau had to struggle to overcome the derision of his contemporaries. That Rousseau succeeded in silencing his critics, winning wide admiration, including that of Picasso, the Surrealists and Wasily Kandinsky, owes much to the jungle paintings."--Amazon

Le monde du douanier Rousseau by Yann Le Pichon( Book )

8 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in French and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ces deux sous-titres définissent bien le propos de l'auteur: faire entrer directement ses lecteurs dans la compréhension biographique et iconographique de l'oeuvre d'Henri Rousseau (1844-1910), dit le Douanier Rousseau, et montrer pourquoi sa prodigieuse imagination créatrice a singulièrement contribué à faire éclore l'art moderne. Historien de l'art renommé, Yann le Pichon, légataire universel du Douanier Rousseau en est l'expert international. À l'occasion du centenaire de sa mort, voici une réédition revue et augmentée de son éclairant album Le monde du Douanier Rousseau, comportant quelques chefs-d'oeuvre inédits et de nouvelles analyses. Preuves à l'appui, Yann le Pichon démontre l'exemplarité du Douanier Rousseau auprès des jeunes créateurs féconds de trois grands mouvements de l'art moderne : l'art naïf certes, mais aussi le surréalisme et le cubisme. Associant étroitement son oeuvre à sa vie, il nous rend très attachante la personnalité si originale d'Henri Rousseau que chérirent tous les poètes de son temps." Ce qu'il voyait n'était qu'amour et nous fera toujours des yeux émerveillés ", a dit de lui Paul Eluard. Yann le Pichon nous en donne, dans son album rigoureusement documenté, la démonstration bouleversante." P. [4] of cover

Rousseau : the dream by Ann Temkin( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henri Rousseau was a singular figure in the early-twentieth-century avant-garde, a self-taught painter who turned to art full-time after retiring as a toll collector at the age of forty-nine. Although he never left Paris, Rousseau painted many jungle scenes, drawing on images of the exotic as presented to the urban dweller through popular literature, colonial expositions, and the Paris zoo. The Dream (1910), one of the artist's last works, is a surreal juxtaposition of the exotic and the domestic that typifies his uncanny exactitude. In this volume of the MoMA One on One series, curator Ann Temkin's essay guides readers in deciphering this mysterious painting."
