Summary
"Inspired by the life of artist Paul Gauguin, The Moon and Sixpence is the complex story of Charles Strickland, a respectable London stockbroker who decides in middle age to abandon his wife and children and devote himself to his true passion: art. Strickland's destructive desire for self-expression takes him first to Paris to learn the craft of painting, and finally to Tahiti in the South Pacific"--Container
