Katsushika Hokusai (Japanese, Tokyo (Edo) 1760–1849 Tokyo (Edo))

Paul Gauguin painter and artist …

Love his art hope you do too …

220px-Paul_Gauguin_1891

Gauguin, c. 1891 Born Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin 7 June 1848 Paris, France Died 8 May 1903 (aged 54) Atuona, Marquesas Islands, French Polynesia Known for Painting, sculpture, ceramics, engraving Movement Post-Impressionism, Primitivism

“Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin (/ɡoʊˈɡæn/; French: [øʒɛn ɑ̃ʁi pɔl ɡoɡɛ̃]; 7 June 1848 – 8 May 1903) was a French post-Impressionist artist. Underappreciated until after his death, Gauguin is now recognized for his experimental use of color and Synthetist style that were distinctly different from Impressionism. His work was influential to the French avant-garde and many modern artists, such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. Gauguin’s art became popular after his death, partially from the efforts of art dealer Ambroise Vollard, who organized exhibitions of his work late in his career, as well as assisting in organizing two important posthumous exhibitions in Paris. Many of his paintings were in the possession of Russian collector Sergei Shchukin and other important collections.

He was an important figure in the Symbolist movement as a painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramist, and writer. His bold experimentation with color led directly to the Synthetist style of modern art, while his expression of the inherent meaning of the subjects in his paintings, under the influence of the cloisonnist style, paved the way to Primitivism and the return to the pastoral. He was also an influential proponent of wood engraving and woodcuts as art forms.” Wikipedia



Hope you enjoy his art. Unfortunately I don’t own any of his works but I am not dead yet working on it!

“Paris, the capital of France, is a major European city and a global center for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. It is also known as the City of Light (La Ville Lumière) or the City of Love and it was initially called Lutetia during Roman times. Paris is one of the most popular cities in the world, gathering over 25 million tourists annually. However the most visited place isn’t the Eiffel Tower as some might think, but Disneyland, with over 13 million visitors annually.

Edinburgh in 4K – Around The World …

Great video with stunning images …


“Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland is located in Lothian on the Firth of Forth’s southern shore and is a center for education especially in the fields of medicine, law, literature and engineering. The city was the first city in the world to have fire service in 1703 and is currently the greenest city in UK, even though its nickname is “Old Smoky” due to an era when the air was full of smoke because of the amount of coal being burnt for heat.
