Nourished by themes in the popular imagination, Rousseau’s painting expresses a vision of reality, populated by iconic figures outlined with hieratic force against flat blocks of saturated color and fantastic spaces – a vision long branded as naive, ingenuous and uncultivated. This book demonstrates how fully Rousseau il Douanier’s masterpieces are part of this archaic trend, and of the world of art in general, from his dream-like exotic landscapes to his still-lifes. They are shown alongside works signed by the likes of Picasso, Gaugain, Frida Kahlo, and Carlo Carr. Contents: Reasons for an exhibition. Henri Rousseau and archaism; Is there an archaic trend in the history of art before Rousseau? Published to accompany an exhibition at Palazzo Ducale, Venice.
