Room A: Paintings after 1600

This sketch was probably painted outdoors and perhaps intended to be finished in the studio. Its loose brushwork is typical of Rousseau's later style.

Rousseau's paintings were in great demand in France in the period after his death and until the First World War, when his popularity was overtaken by that of the Impressionists.
