Gauguin, (Eugene Henri) Paul (1848 - 1903)
French postimpressionist painter, whose lush color, flat two-dimensional forms, and subject matter helped form the basis of modern art.
Selected Paintings
But the lanscape with its strong, pure colours dazzled me, made me blind. I was always undecided, sought and sought... And at the same time it was so easy to paint, as I saw it, without much consideration to place a red beside a blue! Golden figures in streams and on beaches captivated me. Why did I hestitate capturing this jubilation of sun on my canvas? Oh! these old European traditions! the timing style of espression of degenerate races!

"In art, all who have done something other than their predecessors have merited the epithet of revolutionary; and it is they alone who are masters."
"Where do we come from ?
What are we ?
Where are we going ?"
