Niko Pirosmani






Niko Pirosmanashvili was born in 1862 in Mirzaani, Georgia and died of neglect, as a beggar, in 1918.
His paintings are full of charm and are celebration of life painted with a childlike view of the world around him.
Georgi Shenghelaya made in 1971 a wonderful film about his life. I count this film amongst the best I ever seen about an artist.

You are a wealth of information and just maybe that is what all the others out there miss desperately! Thank you so much for educating us, including me, who thought he knew.
More and more, please.
