Gauguin, where are you?

During our vacation in Toronto we stayed in an apartment that belonged to an artist. There were lots of paintings on the walls, some done by the owner of the apartment and some by other artists. Koopa was very impressed with all the pictures, and wanted to know who painted them. I told him that some were painted by the guy who owns the place and some by other people. There were especially a lot of paintings by Gauguin. On the last day of our stay the owner of the apartment came to pick up the key, and Koopa was awed to meet him in person. He watched him for a while, eyes wide open, and then asked me quietly, "Mom, when is Gauguin coming here?" ("Мама, а когда Гоген придёт?")
