Eugene Henri Paul Gauguin............

..........born this day in 1848.  The  French stock-broker, turned
all-around artist, has been identified as a post-impressionist, a
primitivist, a cloisonnist, and a symbolist.  Over the years he
shared paint with the likes of van Gogh, Pissarro, Cezanne,
Laval, Bernard, and Schuffenecker.   It is safe to say that the
influential Gauguin liked to play with color.
