With a mysterious poetry, the lion visits the gypsy woman and her mandolin in a masterful composition that somehow employs hard lines and flattish perspectives to great advantage. As the quintessential untrained artist, it was the innocence and charm of French painter Rousseau's nave or primitive works won him the admiration of the avant-garde. Rousseau was celebrated by Surrealists, including Picasso, for the raw, savage power in his paintings. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica 4.375" wide, European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
