Day of art
I recently visited the gauguin exhibition, I like him as a painter but felt the exhibition was too crowded, especially round his well known paintings. Those paintings were beautiful and I could've stared at them for hours. But the surprise of the exhibition for me was discovering an Illustrator called maurice boutet de monvel and his illustrations for a book by la fontaine called fables. There was an illustration of a fox in the exhibition (room about his life/era he grew up in) which I have failed so far to find. But here are a few examples of his work.
