Paul Gauguin

Coming to a tragic end, Paul Gauguin is a post-impressionist painter during the XIX century and known to be one of the best in his domain. After leaving his job in stock exchange, he decided to move to Rouen where Camille Pissarro guided him into the impressionist movemement and painted nearly 40 paintings representing his new city. Unable to live on his passion, he decide to go to Tahiti in 1891 where his work took a growth and became better. He is also one of the precursors of the Primitivism technique which inspired some great painters such as Picasso. He passed away suddenly in 1903 after the loss of three of his four children.
