First Impressions #2


This experimental artist often felt rejected, stating “Insults are pouring down on me as thick as hail.”

He was one of the first 19th century artists to depict modern-day subjects instead of nobility, myth or religion.

Do you know who this Impressionist is? He looks like my mail-man, but that won’t help. I’ll post the answer and the balance of the comments on Wednesday morning

I wonder why there is only one picture of he/him, who I think it is, in google?

I recognize this one as Klimt, too. Your mailman, huh? Interesting! Did you see the film with John Malkovich?

Cezanne?

I'm reminded of a vintage Lyndon Johnson-ism:

"Sometimes I just hunker down like a jackass in a hailstorm."
