The gallery is pleased to lend its painting by Douanier Rousseau, Portrait de femme au bouquet de fleurs (Clémence Boitard, the artist's first wife) as part of the exhibition The Wonderful World of the Naïf Painters at the Shanghai Jiushi Art Museum.
This marks the inaugural exhibition of Naive Art painters in China. The event promises to immerse audiences in a pure, simple, and fantastical artistic dream crafted by nine representative artists, including Henri Rousseau, the founder of the Naive School. These artists form a group driven by boundless creativity, enthusiasm, and a profound imagination for art and a better life. Through their unique and natural perspectives, they observe, record, and depict everyday subjects, expressing their most genuine inner emotions. The exhibition is divided into five major sections and will feature over 50 oil paintings from Naive Art. The nine artists showcased are Camille Bombois, Andre Bauchant, Seraphine Louis, Henri Rousseau, Dominique Peyronnet, Jean Eve, Ferdinand Desnos, Louis Vivin, and Rene Rimbert.
