This is an expert account of the Post Impressionist artist, Paul Gauguin, who defied convention and renounced European civilization to pursue his art in the South Seas. It explores the influences that defined his style, from Impressionist painters to the brilliant hues and primitive forms of the South Pacific Islands. It features a gallery ranging from his early Impressionist work to his vibrant pictures of a Tahitian idyll. Paul Gauguin was one of the most important artists of the early 20th century. This informative book outlines the artist's personal and working life, his work in France and his paintings of the tropical landscapes of Tahiti and the Caribbean. His mission became to depict an authentic primitivism; a method known as Cloissonism, a technique that was inspired by medieval enamelling: The Yellow Christ is a good example of this style. Another iconic work is Vision after the Sermon (Jacob Wrestling with the Angel). This beautifully illustrated book is essential reading for those who would like to learn about this artist, and to view his works in one comprehensive collection.
