Was he talented, or not?
This informative, 50-minute art-culture documentary takes a close look at the life and times of French, Post-Impressionist painter, Henri Rousseau.
Throughout his career as a painter, Rousseau's work was often ridiculed by critics who scoffed at it as being naive and primitive in nature.
Henri Rousseau lived from 1844-1910.
And, so - The #1 question that is seriously discussed in this art-documentary is - "Was painter, Henri Rousseau just a hopeless amateur? - or - Was he really a true artist of great hidden talent?"
Born (1844) in Laval, France - Henri Rousseau (who had no formal training, whatsoever) was a completely self-taught painter.
Repeatedly ridiculed (during his lifetime) by critics for his "primitive" approach to painting - It wasn't until he was 50 that Rousseau became determined about making a living as an artist.
Presented by Kultur International Films through their "Post-Impressionist" series - This 50-minute art-documentary takes a serious look at both the life and the times of Henri Rousseau.
*Note* - In 1910 - Henri Rousseau (66 at the time) died from a blood clot following an operation for gangrene in his left leg.
