Our tribute to the self-taught 19th century painter Henri Rousseau.

This exuberant, lush, pale and very warm olive green summons the richness of Rousseau’s magical tableaux and his skillful use of intense color to hold one’s attention, especially the enormous jungle scenes painted at the end of his career.  Celebrated and collected by the giants of 20th century modern art, this former Paris Customs Service worker retired early to live his passion and spend his time painting.

We wish to honor both Rousseau’s dedication to and ingenuity in creating his art with this subtle, mixed warm green that offers endless possibilities on the palette as both a yellow and as a green. Useful for softening overly bright cool colors, especially red violet complements, to create more lifelike hues.

Imaged right from the tube at center is our Rousseau Green with Ivory Black at left and Titanium White at far right. Mixing Ivory Black into the Rousseau Green at center left, makes the Rousseau more dimensional and atmospheric as it deepens the value. Adding Titanium White to it from the lower right brings out the yellow undertone of the Rousseau.

Rousseau Green is milled with the finest alkali refined Linseed Oil in limited quantities for a naturally drying durable paint film.
