Paul Gauguin - living in French Polynesia, being supported by the art dealer Ambroise Vollard, Gauguin got into legal trouble for taking the natives’ side against French colonialists. He was charged with libeling the governor, fined 500 francs and sentenced to a month in prison. Suffering from syphilis and alcoholism he died in May 1903 of an overdose of morphine before he could start the prison sentence. He was 54 years old.

I hear the train a comin' It's rolling round the bend And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when, I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on But that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Antone.. When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son, Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns. But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry..
