Henri Rousseau (1884-1910), French Post-Impressionist painter. Depicted many jungle scenes though he never saw a jungle himself. His art was ridiculed much, but it later influenced artists like Picasso and the surrealists.

My favourite ever painting by Rousseau. When it came to the Leeds Art Gallery words can't describe how I felt. It's just stunning!
