Lado Gudiashvili ( 1896– 1980) was a 20th century Georgian painter. Gudiashvili was born in Tiflis on March 18 (30), 1896 into a family of a railroad employee. He studied in the Tiflis school of sculpture and fine art (1910-1914), and later in Ronson's private academy in Paris (1919-1926). For a while, Gudiashvili belonged to a group of Georgian poets called "The Blue Horns" (1914-1918), who were trying to connect organically the Georgian national flavor with the creative structure of French symbolism. In Paris, he was a constant customer of the famous "La Ruche," a colony of painters where he met I. Zuloaga, Amedeo Modigliani, Natalia Goncharova, and Mikhail Larionov. Gudiashvili's work was greatly influenced by Niko Pirosmanashvili. ...more on Wikipedia about "Lado Gudiashvili"
Niko Pirosmanashvili also known as Niko Pirosmani ( May 5? 1862-1918) is a late 19th-early 20th century Georgian painter. His paintings are often of animals, people dining, and people serving food.

Pirosmanashvili is also known in Russia for a romantic encounter with a French actress who visited his town; Pirosmanashvili was deeply in love with her, and to demonstrate it, bought her enough flowers to fill the square in front of her hotel window (allegedly driving himself bankrupt). The story became famous when it was recounted in a poem by Andrei Voznesensky, and later into a hit song by Alla Pugacheva. ...more on Wikipedia about "Niko Pirosmanashvili"
