INDEX NEXT UP LAST ATG Gauguin Gauguin (1848-1903)

WOMAN and A WHITE HORSE BY GAUGUIN Originating from Paris, France, Gauguin felt spiritually bankrupt by the industrial society. Leaving his successful career as a stock broker and his family he travelled abroad. Finally settling in Tahiti he attained guidance from the primitives. From there on in he painted earthly paradises in non-naturalistic colours. He used black heavy outlines, flat simplified shapes and denied perspective as part of his paintings. His art was inspired by folk art and medieval stained glass. [MH] {GB}
