Henri Rousseau (1884-1910), French Post-Impressionist painter. Depicted many jungle scenes though he never saw a jungle himself. His art was ridiculed much, but it later influenced artists like Picasso and the surrealists.
“Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and it's beauty.”
