Paul Gauguin

French Post-Impressionism Painter

Gauguin, in what we now might call a "mid-life crisis", left his career and family to pursue painting, traveling as far as Tahiti to "find himself". Inspired by the South Pacific, Gauguin moved away from Impressionism (and the style of his mentor, Pissarro) and became known for using flat forms and wild color. His best known works all came from this later period.

Important Works:
Tahitian Women, 1891
Nevermore, 1897
Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?, 1897

Birth: June 7, 1848, Paris, France
Death: May 8, 1903, Marquesas, French Polynesia
