Paul Gauguin, French post-Impressionist painter and sculptor, unappreciated until after his death, is now recognized for his experimental use of color and Synthetist style that were distinct from Impressionism (June 7, 1848 - May 8 ,1903) was #born Eugene Henri Paul Gauguin in Paris, France. He worked as a stockbroker, then became a painter in middle age. Toward the end of his life he left Paris and moved to Tahiti, and spent ten years in French Polynesia, where he developed an interest in primitive art. Most of his paintings from this time depict people or landscapes from that region. His style using broad, flat tones and bold colors, was influential to the French avant-garde and many modern artists, and inspired artists such as Edvard Munch, Henri Matisse, and the young Pablo Picasso. Gauguin's art became popular after his death, partially from the efforts of art dealer Ambroise Vollard, who organized exhibitions of his work late in his career and assisted in organizing two important posthumous exhibitions in Paris. Gauguin was an important figure in the Symbolist movement as a painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramist, and writer. His expression of the inherent meaning of the subjects in his paintings, under the influence of the cloisonnist style (a style of post-Impressionist painting with bold and flat forms separated by dark contours), paved the way to Primitivism and the return to the pastoral. He was also an influential proponent of wood engraving and woodcuts as art forms. Among his best known paintings are Vision After the Sermon (1888), When Shall We Be Married? (1892), Holiday (1896), and Two Tahitian Women (1899).
