Paul Gauguin


Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was a French neo-impressionist painter whose vivid paintings with their flat, bold colours and use of mystical and ambiguous symbols revolutionised art. Never quite gaining success in his own lifetime, Gauguin was driven to Polynesia in search of a place unspoilt by modernity where he could express himself independent of all artistic conventions.
