PAUL GAUGIN (Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin), French Artist (1848-1903). French Post-Impressionist, who was not well known until after his death. He was recognized for his use of colors and synthetist style that was different from Impressionism. He was 30 years old and a stockboker when he started painting. It was a quarrel between Gaugin and VanGogh which prompted VanGogh to cut his ear off. Gaugin left France in 1895 and spent the rest of his life in Tahiti and Marqueses.
