"A compilation of works from the Bridgeman Art Library."
Paul Gauguin, the stockbroker who started off as a Sunday painter, became world-famous for renouncing civilization to live in the South Seas Initially he adopted the Impressionist technique, finding it liberating, but eventually found his own distinctive style, with boldly outline forms and strong, flat colors In this exciting work 50 of Gauguin's best-known and most representative works are reproduced, including his 'synthetist' style. He is still known today for his Tahitian paintings with their sculpturesque treatment of figures.
