Rousseau in D.C.

"Two Monkeys in the Jungle" (1909)

This struck me as worthy of sharing. The New York Times reviewed a new exhibit opening Sunday in Washington here. Registration is required and the article will only be up for a limited time, so the post title is hyper-linked to the National Gallery site about the event.

Since is is so steamy in NYC this weekend, I totally was drawn to these paintings. Enjoy these samples!

“The Hungry Lion Throws Itself on the Antelope” (1905)

“Portrait of Monsieur X (Pierre Loti),” around 1910.

“The Dream,” one of his most famous, from 1910

"The Orchard" (circa 1896)

"The Football Players" (1908)

"Rendezvous in the Forest" (1889)
