Dropping in on Rousseau

( 26:06 )

When clumsy interviewer Puffer flies into early twentieth-century Paris to meet self-trained artist Henri Rousseau — Le Douanier — he is in for many surprises. As Puffer discovers the origins of Rousseau’s artistic ideas, he also finds that the artwork and the artist become more and more mysterious. Young viewers and adults alike will enjoy the humorous approach taken with Dropping in on Rousseau. Combining animation with actual art images, the Rousseau masterworks are shown and explored. Characters in the video pose open-ended questions that prompt viewers of all ages to make their own critical analyses and interpretations of the works of art. Finding out that Rousseau’s artwork leaves many unanswered questions is half the fun of Dropping in on Rousseau. Written by Pam Stephens. Animated by Jim McNeill.
