Fernand Gaston Longchamp was an impressionist and expressionist artist born in America to a French mother and Cayuga-Iroquois father. His family moved to France around the time of Gaston's birth and his father, an artist himself, was acquainted with many prominent artists in Paris such as Renoir, Signac and Seurat. Gaston would eventually apprentice with his father and became familiar with these artists himself. By fourteen he was working with painters in Montmartre and benefited from insights from Raoul Dufy, Georges Braque, Henri Matisse and others. He worked with Picasso painting stage designs for the Russian Ballet in 1911 and with Marc Chagall painting scenes for Stravinsky's Firebird. He briefly attended the Academie des Beaux Arts before returning to America in the 1920s where he would go on to become one of the foremost set designers in the United States. He set up a studio in Kintnersville, Bucks County, Pennsylvania where he worked prolifically until retiring in the 1970s. He passed away in 1986.

An oil on canvas painting titled "The Soothsayer"by Swiss-American Artist John Konstantin Hansegger. The piece is signed and dated (1986) in the lower right. John Konstantin Hansegger(1908-1989) was a unique figure in 20th Century Art, working as he did at the highest level in most of the major movements of the past century. His career spanned seven decades and five continents, and produced at least six major periods and several minor ones. His mastery extended over Cubism, synthetic cubism, Abstract Expressionism, Impressionism, portraiture(he painted many culture icons from life including Picasso, Einstein, and Albert Schweitzer), and several styles of his own. He was a member of the Surindependants in Paris in the 1930’s winning the Silver Medal of Paris in 1939 with one of his groundbreaking “Abstract Parallels” paintings, and working in close association with Fernand Leger, Picasso, Alfred Reth and Mondrian This painting, “The Soothsayer(card reader)”is one that incorporates the Abstract Parallels, along with more figurative elements. This is the second version of this painting, the first being executed and exhibited in Switzerland in 1942. During the war he returned to his native Switzerland where he was a founding member of Paul Klee’s Allianz. During this period he founded the historical gallery Des Eaux Vives, in Zurich, which is credited with helping to keep modern art alive in Europe by providing a venue for such artists as Kandinsky, Klee, Max Bill, Walter Bodmer, Hans Arp, Max Huber, Sophie Tucker Arp, Richard Lohse and many others during the dark days of World War II. During this period he worked primarily in the Art Konkrete style, sometimes blended with his Abstract Parallel motif. After the war his painting exploded in new directions. When he was Invited to hold a one-man show at the Princeton Museum in 1953, he elected to stay and settle in America where he continued to paint, show and innovate until his death in 1989, a few months after the major retrospective given him at the Kunst Museum in his home city of St. Gallen in Switzerland. Several books have been written about his career. His work still looks remarkably fresh and contemporary today, is being discovered by more and more designers, and was recently seen in Martha Stewart’s Living.
