Yesterday I had the most delightful day visiting the Gaugin exhibition at the Tate Modern. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I spent over four hours there and read everything on offer. I never knew that he was living with Vincent Van Gogh when the ear incident happened! He was a bit of a wild man to say the least! There were letters there to his poor wife. I think if I had been in her shoes I would have wanted to clobber him! But given all that he was a very talented man. His paintings were just a small part of his talents. He also did wood carving and sculpture....absolutely stunning even if at times a bit macabre!
