asericamagazine Henri Rousseau is best known for his vivid jungle paintings – lions and tigers creeping through fantasy landscapes of dense forest growth, punctuated by red and yellow fruits and flowers and deep-orange suns. Yet, the toll-collector-cum-artist was never truly appreciated for his avant-garde style. His contemporaries did not respect him and his ‘simplistic’ self-taught way of painting went largely unrecognised during his lifetime. Picasso once threw his amateur-painter friend a banquet, claiming it to be just a joke. Rousseau, after all, was a customs officer (le Douanier ) – a ‘primitive’ that had never formally studied painting, nor even been to a tropical colony (all his jungles were based on Jardin des Plantes).

daily_great_art Dots & pointillism, basically the first DPI ratings for visual arts. Later we use it for computer screens and phones.
But Seurat with "Bathers at Asnieres"(thanks for the post @nationalgallery) takes paint and uses complementary colors and make a cohesive scene that looks solid in the fore ground and ethereal in the distance. It has that hazy quality that your eye actually sees. The figures are practically faceless it seems Seurat cares more about the forms than he does about the character of the people. But without the faces the painting seems way more sedate. Maybe Seurat wanted it that way, the lazy summer afternoon impression.

tomaksbaks Wow. It's hard to tell with nothing for scale, but I always assumed this painting would be Mona Lisa sized and instead it's massive. 2d

lindsaysaccullointeriors #tbt tip: don't bring toddler to #theartinstituteofchicago unless you want to sweat bullets chasing her around the world-renowned Impressionism gallery. But it was worth it - especially to see this Seurat gem! 🏻 #finddesigneverywhere #chicagoart #chicago #art #impressionism #seurat #interiors #interiordesign #decor #paint #painting #artist 3d
