Artist of the Day- Paul Gauguin (click on image to see more)

Paul Gauguin was a post impressionist known for his extravagant use of color and his somewhat scandalous lifestyle. He spent a difficult summer with Van Gogh in Arles and ended his life in the Marquesas. These paintings are from his time in Tahiti and the Marquesas. One of them is a self portrait…where he has portrayed himself as Christ. Hmmmm
