Went to the Morgan Library for a final visit at the Rousseau show again. Snuck some photos for humanity’s sake. Details to follow if I get a copy of the catalog before the cease-and-desist letters pour in.
Rousseau is one of my favorites. He’s a contemporary of Corot’s and a bit of a second-run with the Salon. As such, he retreated a bit and subsequently ended up selling a lot of work to Americans. The Morgan was able to draw a luscious little exhibition of 60 works, mostly on paper, entirely from New England collections.
If you’re in NYC, it’s up for another week. Through December 20th, I believe.
