La guerre in L’Ymagier

Rousseau’s only lithograph was the one he created after his painting La guerre expressly for L’Ymagier. He made significant changes to the figures and the landscape, suggestive of the naive popular imagery the magazine often featured. Rousseau also painted a portrait of Jarry (now lost) that was listed in the catalogue for the Salon des Indépendants in 1895 as Portrait de Madame A.J.
