i wish i painted more still lifes… (Paul wonner) leon borensztein isadora kosofsky. i highly recommend the gauguin exhibit that’s going on now at the moma. he was a curious man and i’d like to learn more about his incessant obsession with paradise. why was he always on the search for this? how did the local people of tahiti and panama react to his personality? was he amiable and admiring, or just a weirdo, looking for a novel alternative to the cobblestones of paris?
