The Dream 1910

This oil on canvas painting by Henri Rousseau in 1910 is titled "The Dream", and it currently hangs at the MOMA. It is a huge painting almost 7 feet by 10 feet. He used imagination in his paintings, which is clearly depicted in this jungle scene with the nude woman. I liked this painting because he uses alot of color and magic to create a scene unheard of. A luteplayer in fine cloth stands in the backround behind a lion and bison. They all appear wide-eyed, and this painting was described as being supernatural.
