Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) met het werk Femmes Tahiti is een post impressionist. Was succesvolle beurshandelaar maar stortte zich uiteindelijk op de schilderkunst. Na een periode in Parijs, Arles en Bretagne gewerkt te hebben, ging hij naar Tahiti waar hij vrouwen in prachtige kleuren schilderde. Dit zijn zijn bekendste werken. Ik zie in dit werk kwetsbaarheid en verslagenheid.
Paul Gauguin Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin (7 June 1848 – 8 May 1903) was a leading Post-Impressionist painter. His bold experimentation with coloring led directly to the Synthetist style of modern art while his expression of the inherent meaning of the subjects in his paintings, under the influence of the cloisonnist style, paved the way to Primitivism and the return to the pastoral. He was also an influential exponent of wood engraving and woodcuts as art forms.
Gaugin. I had this print in my dorm room - freshman year of college.

Gauguin was later recognized for his experimental use of colors and synthetist style that were distinguishably different from Impressionism. His work was influential to the French avant-garde and many modern artists, such as Pablo Picasso, and Henri Matisse.
