" Merry Jesters " is an extraordinarily rich painting by Henri Rousseau, a group of bearded monkeys and a tropical bird look out intently at the viewer, as if a sudden noise has disturbed their play. The group in the foreground huddles together, an upturned bottle inexplicably emptying its contents into the air in front of them, while a lone monkey in the middle distance hugs a tree trunk in fear. The absurd, pantomime humour of the picture is strangely at odds with the latent menace of the animals' unsettling stares and the frozen stillness of the scene. This tragicomic effect is typical of Rousseau's highly acclaimed late work.

The absurd, pantomime humour of the picture is strangely at odds with the latent menace of the animals' unsettling stares and the frozen stillness of the scene. This tragicomic effect is typical of Rousseau's highly acclaimed late work.

Henri Julien Félix Rousseau was a French Post-Impressionist painter in the Naïve or Primitive manner. He was also known as Le Douanier, a humorous description of his occupation as a toll collector.   Although he had ambitions to become a famous academic painter, Rousseau instead became the virtual opposite: the quintessential "naïve" artist. Largely self-taught, Rousseau developed a style that evidenced his lack of academic training, with its absence of correct proportions, one-point perspective, and use of sharp, often unnatural colors. Such features resulted in a body of work imbued with a sense of mystery and eccentricity.
