The Surprising Vision of Henri Rousseau

Nicknamed the Douanier (the customs agent), Rousseau was actually a self-taught former toll collector, alternately admired, teased and beloved as he pursued establishing his art. The exhibit is steps lightly, much as Rousseau did; there are also comparative works by renowned friends and contemporaries like Cezanne, Picasso, Seraut and Delauney.

At the Doge’s apartment in the Palazzo Ducale, Rousseau’s works make a great complement to the upcoming 56th Art Biennale exhibitions; the Douanier is on til July 5.
