Paul Réne Gauguin
I was brought up reading alot of childrenbooks, and last year I came across the poetry book by Inger Hagerup ( norwegian poet and author) in a thrift store in Førde. It is illustrated by the Norwegian illustrator and painter Paul Réne Gauguin(1911-1976). The book is called "Så rart" ("how odd/strange") and is originally from 1950. Sadly i could not find any photos of him, but i will try to find out more about him later on. Until then he remains a mystery.
I love these illustrations. Absolutely stunning.
By the way. Inger hagerup(1905-1985) did some amazing poetry in her career. I would realy recommend this book.
