A Carnival Evening, 1886

A Carnival Evening, 1886

Henri Rousseau

In August of 1886, the Société des Indépendants, a group of artists including George Seurat and Paul Signac, mounted an exhibition that was revolutionary. For a fee of fifteen francs any artist, with or without academic training, could participate and exhibitors did not have to pass a jury selection or meet any stylistic criteria. “Carnival Evening” was Rousseau’s submission to this exhibition, and it created a sensation. The precise, yet cartoon-like treatment of the trees, clouds, and people brought Rousseau critical ridicule, but the unusual composition of the small harlequin figures in front of a forest of barren winter trees appealed to the Post-Impressionists.

Including a perfect circle in his paintings became one of Rousseau’s trademarks. Here it appears as a moon, but it can also represent the sun or even a soccer ball in other paintings.

Painting`s original is located at Philadelphia Museum of Art, Pennsylvania.

The painting will be delivered unstreched, rolled in protective & presentable case.
