Below are two photographic portraits of the painter Henri Rousseau (1844-1910), taken by the French photographer Paul Marsan, who went by the nickname "Dornac." Rousseau was a self-taught painter who didn't start painting on a regular basis until he reached his early 40s; he was known as "Le Douanier" (which translates to "The Customs Officer"), which was a joke related to his actual job as a toll and tax collector. He retired from that job to paint full-time when he turned 49.
