This painting hung on my bedroom wall as a when I was a kid. My parents said they finally had to take it down because it scared me.
They had this one hanging in the kitchen. This one didn't scare me. I liked looking at it and I think some of his art (the paintings without the tigers and lions perhaps) would work great as children's art. Although, I will say that it wasn't the lion that scared me in the painting... it was the person lurking in the shadows. I had an issue with people lurking in shadows, but I digress.
Now I love all of Rousseau's art and found this nice, short documentary about him.
