This Art Book with Foreword and annotated reproductions by Maria Tsaneva contains 164 selected drawings and paintings of Paul Gauguin.
Eugene-Henri-Paul Gauguin was French avant-garde painter, sculptor, and printmaker. His style cultivated from Impressionism in the direction of a personal variety of Symbolism, which sought within the tradition of Pierre Puvis de Chavannes to combine and contrast an idealized vision of primitive Polynesian culture with the scepticism of a sophisticated European. Gauguin was identified for his investigational use of colors and bold style that were absolutely altered from Impressionism. His work was prominent to the French avant-garde and a lot of modern painters like Matisse and Picasso. His brave testing with colors led in a straight line to the so called Synthetist style of modernism and traced the way to Primitivism and the come again to the idyllic and pastoral.
