About This Book
Paul Gauguin lived in many exciting places and did many different things during his life. The color pictures and simple text in this book show the different phases in Gauguin's art and relate why he left his high-paying job as a stockbroker to become a poor artist in the South Pacific.
These books are without a doubt the definitive — and most entertaining — biographies of artists for young readers. Author/artist Mike Venezia provides hilarious, cartoon-style illustrations to complement his easy-to-read text and full-color reproductions of the masters' artwork. Now printed in a dozen different languages worldwide, and with more than two million copies of the English editions sold, these books have helped countless children around the world "get to know" the world's greatest artists!
