Artistic Expression: Gauguin

Leading French Post - Impressionist artist from France with a vast amount of knowledge and experience that later produced into art through different mediums such as: painting, sculpting, print- making, pottery, and writing.

He was one of the first mainstream artist to capture people of a different colour and lifestyle for Europe and the Western world.

Please just take this in:

Paul Gauguin, Te aa no areois (The Seed of the Areoi), 1892, The Museum of Modern Art

The Yellow Christ (Le Christ jaune), 1889, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY

The Midday Nap, (1894)

And one of his most famous pieces:

Spirit of the Dead Watching 1892, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY

His work will make someone question how history was written.

NAMI... Inspiration. Imagination. Innovation
