Road in Tahiti, 1891 - Paul Gauguin. In 1891, Gauguin sailed to French Polynesia to escape European civilization and "everything that is artificial and conventional". His time away, particularly in Tahiti and Hiva Oa Island, was the subject of much interest in France due to his supposed sexual exploits.

La Branche, Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Chagall embraced the philosophy that love colored his paintings. Focusing extensively on his childhood, his happy, optimistic paintings defy the poverty of his upbringing in a Russian Shtetl. After a brief time in Paris, Chagall escaped to the US during World War II where his career reached new heights including a rare exhibit during his lifetime at the Louvre.
