Paul Gauguin (1848)

First a sailor and then a successful stockbroker in Paris, Gauguin took up painting on weekends when he was in his mid-20s. Eventually, with the encouragement of Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro, he devoted himself completely to art, quitting his job and separating from his wife and five children.

Great artist. His paintings were among my first childhood's impressions, for my dad liked Gauguin's and van Gogh's art and our place was full of their reproductions.

Gaugin and VanGough were both madmen whose innovative style of painting advanced artistic expression during the time they lived. Throughout their close friendship, other than the love of painting, they also shared "bouts of depression and suicidal tendencies." Some might even call them "madmen," which is a label that is often applied to creative types. Some, like today's rappers and late night television hosts, seem to covet it.

I had a casual friend a bit of nut some times a bore. Then I found out he was an artist (music) and I forgave him and enjoyed his talent. After a while the bore came on full blast and if I never see him again good. This all took about 20 years.

A great painter. If you going to master one, then certainly the rest will have its flaws.
