French Post-Impressionist painter Henri Rousseau (1844-1910) was born in France’s Loire Valley to a family of tinsmiths. Never receiving any formal training, the gifted artist didn’t devote himself to his art until he was 49, and remarked that he had no teacher other than nature. His work was popular with his peers, including Picasso and Matisse. As a pioneer of naive art, Rousseau is loved for his striking jungle scenes.
We started out as a small screenprinter in a Brighton basement. Today we've grown to a factory and design studio in Newhaven. Headed by founder Gyr King, we have a simple ethos to bring inspiring, affordable art to everyone.
