Product description


Henri Rousseau wants to be an artist. Not a single person has ever told him he is talented. Hes a toll collector. Hes forty years old. But he buys some canvas, paint, and brushes, and starts painting anyway. Markels account of Rousseaus humility and amateur passion for art strikes just the right tone - its jaunty, confiding, and affectionate. --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
