Artist Bio

Paul Gauguin was a French painter born in 1848. At a young age Gauguin moved from Paris, to Lima, Peru, and then back again by the time he was seven years old. His experiences as a young child would influence his art later on in his life. Although not formally trained, Gauguin painted with masters such as Paul Cézanne, Pissaro and Van Gogh. Paul Gauguin is best known for his Post-Impressionism style of brightly colored paintings of the landscapes and the people of Tahiti. Gauguin's work can be found in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, and several others internationally.
