Paul Gauguin

French post-Impressionist artist Paul Gauguin was an important figure in the Symbolist art movement of the early 1900s. His use of bold colors, exaggerated body proportions and stark contrasts in his paintings set him apart from his contemporaries, helping to pave the way for the Primitivism art movement. Gauguin often sought exotic environments, and spent time living and painting in Tahiti.

Paul Gaugin, "Cattle at a Watering Place", 1885  Gauguin was 35 when he quit his job at a bank in order to become a painter. He would have been spurred on by his friend Pissarro, who also secured a place for him in the last exhibition organised by the Impressionists as a group. This painting was one of the works he displayed there. There is not a hint of his later radicalism.
