French painter, sculptor and printmaker Paul Gauguin was born in Paris in 1848 and died in French Polynesia in 1903. The paintings created from this time to his death brought him posthumous fame. In pictures devoid of any attempt at romantically disguising the life style of the primitive island peoples, Gauguin was able to convey the magical effect that both the landscapes and life of the natives their body language, charm and beauty had on him.
The vivid colours and bold outlines of his paintings and the strong, semi-abstract quality of his woodcuts had a profound effect on the development of twentieth-century art. Richly illustrated with 100 works with explanatory captions , this book explores the artists' techniques and his pivotal place in the history of art.
