1. Gauguin

From the recording Gauguin

"I used to live near a fantastic art museum in Princeton, NJ which had 3 or 4 Gauguin paintings. His story, leaving his bourgeois life as a stockbroker behind to eventually become a painter in Polynesia is a fascinating one. I think a lot of us have our own personal Gauguin stories--the leaps we have made to follow our passions."
