Paul Gauguin & Friends


 

Image

Paul Gaugin is the white haired gentleman hit by the light on the left. His shoulder to the camera.  Arthur Wesley Dow is in the white hat, sitting behind the table on the right. The rest? Who knows. And why so serious? Looking off in different directions. Many questions here.

Posed in front of the Pension Gloanec. Pont Aven. Brittany. Picture is from the Smithsonian Archives of American Art. Dow’s legacy now preserved forever in the Smithsonian, the Addison Gallery and collections world wide due in large part to the work of his Grandniece—Dr. Barbara Wright. (aka . . .my Mom)

    Frank–The story I hear is that Dow’s New England Puritan temperament did not mix with the wild Gauguin–but good art is good art. And with these guys, good art ruled!
