Henri Rousseau.

In 3P we have been exploring the life of  French painter Henri Rousseau. 

We have looked at his life and all the fascinating facts such as: He never had an art lesson in his life. He only started painting properly when he retired. He never visited a jungle and didn't know how to paint bananas.

Henri Rousseau was born in 1844 in Laval France and died in 1910 also in Laval. He painted so many pictures of the jungle using oversized flowers. .

The children each week have been looking at Rousseau's pictures and comparing the foreground, middle ground and the background to each pictures. The children are also able to pick out the centre of interest and name some paintings.
