This oil on canvas by Henri Rousseau was painted in the last year of his life. He used colors and lines to make this very detailed perspective of a jungle scene. The natural shapes in this painting are larger then the people and animals in the painting making the focus of the painting the natural world and it's beauty. There's shadows on the leafs giving them great detail, thou little shadows or details are used on other aspects of the painting such as the rocks, water, animals and humans. The positive space of the painting is mainly living plants, trees and grass and there's little negative space which makes up the sky. The perception of the artist is clearly focused on the over sized trees and plant life he must have imagined had he ever seen this in real life.
