Paul Gauguin (1848–1903) was once a stockbroker before he decided to devote his life to painting, which he first approached as an amateur. From Pont-Aven and Tahiti, where he sojourned multiple times, to Arles in 1888, the year of his painful split with Van Gogh, Gauguin created an original œuvre characterized by simple forms, the subjective value of colors, but most importantly, by its mystical yet anxious renderings of human destiny.
