The unique, primitive style of Henri Rousseau is a popular choice for print reproductions and this section examines some of the key factors to consider when buying art prints online.

The unique style of Rousseau, plus his use of animals and a bright colour palette has made his work particularly liked with art fans in the present day. Despite not following the traditional route of art schooling, he still attained a high level of quality within his paintings and was best remembered for his characterful portraits and jungle scenes. There is no-one that we can really compare him to in terms of a similar style and content, he was truly unique.

It is Rousseau's jungle-based paintings that are most frequently reproduced. Many find them charming and the colours can lift a home or office wall. The most popular are Surprise, Dream and Snake Charmer. He created a large number of other similar scenes, alternating the composition of the jungle each time and also using different animals like Monkeys, Horses, Gazelles, Cats, Tigers and Deer. In truth, he established himself as one of the most famous artists related to animal art, alongside perhaps Albrecht Durer, Pablo Picasso and George Stubbs.

The highlights from Henri Rousseau's career are all available as art prints, check out the paintings section to find your favourite. With the artist's career having ended sufficiently long ago, his work is now copyright free, enabling any retailer to offer a full selection of his work for sale online. They would naturally need to get hold of high resolution imagery of each artwork in order to complete sufficiently high quality prints but these are relatively freely available.
