From the South Seas

M. Paul Gauguin (b.1848) is a painter of great influence. A Frenchman, he took to painting at age 25, making friends with both Van Gogh and Degas. The times were remarkably productive artistically.

He went to paint in Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands. His genius was not acknowledged until after his death.

Rhinos find his work appealing. We see a lot of Rhino in his brushwork and use of color. Probably you do too.
