Paul Gauguin A.B. Whittam read online review & book description:

History reports Paul Gauguin as a selfish person who quit work as a banker and left his wife and children to fend for themselves while he indulged his ambitions to become a painter.   Not True.   Read the chapter on Paul Gauguin’s life and works.
In todays society, Paul  would have been arrested long ago for being involved with  the  young  girls he seemed to prefer. We should not forget that in fact it was the mother of his first young lady “friend” who insisted he  take her daughter - forgetting to tell him that he than became responsible for her family!  
Today most people care very little about the life style or Legend of the man, only that he created some stunning paintings.

I have stood in some of Europe's finest art galleries over the years and only art lovers know that feeling when stood in front of a masterpiece. Posters and prints are fine.. but they do not have that “buzz’ of the real painting hanging there in front of you.  
Having  seen many  eBooks available from the many online  publishers, most seem content have  a photo image and a few words.

To give the  best possible viewing experience, I have tried to recreate the art gallery! 
The first obstacle not over come - yet - was frames.  So  they were  eliminated to  give unity and a greater image area on the small screen of an iPad.  Also, as more and more art galleries  ban photography in favour of selling DVD of their images, prints, books and poster, actually getting a descent image of any  painting involves some searching and work.  I hope our results offered for your viewing meet your approval.
