Paul Eugène-Henri Gauguin

Gauguin, Paul Eugène-Henri (1848–1903), French postimpressionist painter noted for his pictures of Polynesian life. After painting in a symbolist style at Pont-Aven, Brittany, and working with Vincent van Gogh, he went to Tahiti (1891–93; 1895–1901) and the Marquesas (1901–3) in the South Pacific. He painted scenes in brilliant colors and flattened, simplified forms. His concept of primitivism in art influenced expressionism.
