The Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN – On Thursday, January 10th, 2013, the Customs House Muesem and Cultural Center will hold their Art and Lunch program featuring a film about the painter Henri Rousseau at 12:55pm.

Admission to this event is free. (to film only).

Henri Rousseau’s professional life was spent working as a customs official. But in his spare time, he painted and was utterly convinced of the greatness of his art, despite his complete lack of formal training.

Although he was heavily criticized by many for his use of brightly colored images and child-like techniques, he did bring a sense of vitality, charm and innocence to his paintings.

This fascinating program includes all new location footage, re-creations and reconstructions, studies of the great works, commentary and analyses from leading authorities, art historians and scholars.

This film is free and open to the public.

Guests are welcome to bring their lunches to enjoy during the presentation. The movie is approximately 50 minutes long, and is being shown in conjunction with The Passion of Kitty Harvill.
