Henri Emilien Rousseau was born on December 17, 1875 in Cairo to French parents.
He was a watercolorist, drawer, illustrator, orientalist, painter of landscapes, and used gouache.

Rousseau was the student of Jean-Léon Gérôme. Thanks to a travel grant that he received in 1900, he visited Holland first, and then Belgium. The following year he visited Spain, Tunisia, and Algeria. Rousseau returned to North Africa several times before the First World War. During 1920-1932, he worked in Morocco.

He exhibited in Paris at the Salon des Artistes Français, and participated in exhibitions in Belgium, Holland, England, Sweden, Brazil, Argentina, and Japan.

His favorite subjects are scenes of nomadic life, cavaliers in movement, and vast landscapes inspired by North Africa or of Camargue.

He died on March 28, 1933 in Aix-en-Provence.
