I love to work with Henri Rousseau because he always
used so much detail in his paintings. I recently found a lovely 
painting if his of a sunset very similar to this one and fell in
love with it.

 I really like the depth of the trees leading back 
to the broken sunset beyond them. I just saw lovers taking
a stroll on the path lit up from the pinks and yellows of the 
sunset. Maybe they took a break from sipping wine and 
and playing some music, reading and smelling the roses
to take "A Sunset Stroll with Rousseau"


Small details make this painting very special. The book has a rose
to mark the last page read and another is placed in front of 
the wine glasses. Were these a gift from her lover?

Rousseau's work is characterized by heavy dependence on line, stiff (and unrealistic) portraiture, wild juxtapositions and flattened perspective from which the Cubists and Surrealists drew heavily. His imagination plays a major role in his work; Rousseau never personally set foot in a jungle. He did, though, spend considerable time viewing the plants and animals at Paris' Jardin des Plantes. It seems wrong to label his work as "primitive" without acknowledging the sense of wonder behind it.
