4.82 under100skies Paul Gauguin




Paul Gauguin was born in Paris on June 7, 1848 at the time of revolutionary upheavals throughout Europe. Unappreciated until after his death, Gauguin is now recognized for his experimental use of color and Synthetist style that were distinctly different from Impressionism. Contemporaries and friends included other post-impressionist artists Émile Bernard, Vincent van Gogh and Eugene Boch. Towards the end of his life he spent ten years in French Polynesia, and most of his paintings from this time depict people or landscapes from that region.  He died in May, 1903 at the age of 54.

“No one is good; no one is evil; everyone is both, in the same way and in different ways. …It is so small a thing, the life of a man, and yet there is time to do great things, fragments of the common task.”  — Paul Gauguin, Intimate Journals, 1903
