Rousseau: Fight Between A Tiger And A Buffalo

This wonderful 1908 painting of a tiger attacking a buffalo in a tropical jungle makes for a remarkable scarf with its rich colours and fascinating subject matter, but is, all the same, somewhat unbelievable.

Henri Rousseau (1844-1910) was a French tax inspector, and only became serious about painting when he retired, but then his life got even more serious as he was imprisoned for fraud. In fact, he was only released from prison in order to complete this huge 5 x 6 feet painting.

He never travelled abroad, so his paintings are all derived from travel books, and visits to the Paris Botanical Gardens - hence the upside down bananas and the imaginary jungle! Very impressionistic.

All the same, Picasso much admired him, and we love this painting as a scarf. We're sure you would do too.

The image frame is a Weston Malachite.

The image has been made available by courtesy of the Cleveland Museum Of Art.

It is exclusively available from Liberty London, and on this website.
