French post-Impressionist artist.
Unappreciated until after his death, Gauguin is now recognized for his experimental use of color and Synthetist style that were distinctly different from Impressionism.
Towards the end of his life he spent ten years in French Polynesia, and most of his paintings from this time depict people or landscapes from that region.
