French painter and a leading figure of Postimpressionism
. His experiments with colour strongly influenced modern art of the early 20th century. As one of the first, he subscribed to primitivism: simplified and exaggerated contours of the body, strong and contrasting colours. This artistic style was partly due his admiration for the art of the primitive cultures of Africa, Micronesia and North American Indians. Gauguin himself had the opportunity to experience life on Tahiti, where he resided from 1891 until his death. It was in Polynesia that he created his most famous paintings.
