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.

Gauguin was one of the leaders of the Pont-Aven group and primary figure in Parisian intellectual circles in his times. His use of color and expressiveness was extensively influential on early 20th-century avant-garde visual art.
