Paul Gaugin Exhibit at the National Gallery of Art

The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. is hosting an exhibit of paintings by 19th century French artist Paul Gaugin. The gallery is calling it “Gaugin: Maker of Myth” — because that sounds better than “Gaugin: Big Fat Liar.”
As this story from the Los Angeles Times points out, the expert opinion is that Paul Gaugin was a hell of a painter.
