The French painter Henri Rousseau (1844-1910) is one of the most important naive painters without academic education. One of his most famous works is titled "The Sleeping Gypsy" (French La Bohémienne endormie). Clear outlines are as typical of Rousseau's painting as are the bold colors. The lying figure is perspectively painted "wrong", she would have to tip over at any moment. But the viewer only takes note of these alleged errors casually. Predominant is the impression of a distinctive pictorial language beyond any correct representation of reality. A fantastic atmosphere is based on this image, because the viewer knows about the absolutely unrealistic image design and still feels drawn into a completely independent world of images.

The poet and contemporary Rousseau Guillaume Apollinaire described the painter as primitive and his painting as naive. Both properties are attributed to Rousseau again and again, Kandinsky sees the self-taught on the way to great realism.

However Rousseau's work is located in the history of art, his very own, fascinating style of painting remains undeniable. The viewer recognizes a Rousseau at first sight without surprises, such as in the picture "Der Schienenstrang". The picture shows a cityscape in winter and is characterized by clear colors and lines. The cold of the winter day is palpable, at the same time the arrangement seems to be able to tilt at any time into an abstract imagery of pure forms and colors. © Meisterdrucke
