Description
The life of Paul Gauguin, who left his family and his career as a stockbroker behind in France to pursue his artistic inspiration in Tahiti, is told here through the eyes of his daughter Aline, the one closest to him, and illustrated with the vividly colored woodcuts of Yan Thomas. She describes how his artistic vision developed, and how his passion to find the purest expression of humanity drove him. But Aline did not survive her father, and the heartbroken Paul takes up the story after her death, providing a poignant coda, in this oversized picture book for readers 8 and up.
