Famous for his paintings of French Polynesia, full of vibrant flora, exotic women, and brilliant color, Paul Gauguin began painting as an untrained artist in his spare time. Though he aligned himself with the Impressionists, and called himself a Synthesist, Gauguin is now considered by art historians to be a post-Impressionist artist. Illustrated with 81 color plates, each with the page to itself, this compact yet attractive book spans his career, from such early works as The Seine at Pont D'Iena in Snow (1875) to the emerging of his mature style in works like Jacob Wrestling with the Angel (1888) and Gauguin's masterwork Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? (189798), presented here across two pages.
