INSPIRATION Henri Rousseau 1910... Lanvin SS//2011

Henri Rousseau's jungle painting 'The Dream' [left/ some cut-outs] reminds me of the five gorgeous african queens in Lanvin's SS//2011 collection [right]... similarities in mood, color world and patterns.
Henri Rousseau was a French Post-Impressionist in the naïve or primitive manner.
He painted 'The Dream', which is exposed at the MoMa in New York, in the year of his death in 1910.
