"Paul Gauguin is probably best known for his paintings of life on the faraway islands of the South Pacific. He loved the colors he found in the jungles, the native people who lived there, and their ancient customs."
This biography introduces Gauguin in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author's premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists' works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Gauguin, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion.
