Stranger than fiction: a close look at the McNay’s Milkmaids with Liz Lloyd

Henri Rousseau, the first outsider artist to make it big, didn’t always paint lush foliage, ripe fruits and riper women; in 1906 he painted Landscape with Milkmaids (and a mighty odd tree) now in San Antonio’s McNay museum. Learn more about the work and hear how Rousseau’s curious personal life in turn-of-the-century Paris influenced his artistic direction this evening at 6:30 in the museum’s Zoch Gallery as museum educator Liz Lloyd.
