  1. A harmonium is a free-standing keyboard instrument similar to a reed organ. Sound is produced by air being blown through sets of free reeds, resulting in a sound similar to that of an accordion. The air is usually supplied by bellows operated by the foot, hand, or knees.

    A contemporary of Gauguin, Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and poster designer. The two were friends in Paris during its heyday of expressionism.

    Mucha had a great influence on the ‘Psychedelic Art’ period of the mid 1960’s – especially the ‘San Francisco art scene’.
