Woman with a Flower Paul Gauguin was born June 7, 1848 in Paris, France.
He moved to Lima, Peru at age 3.
Moved to Orléans at age 7. Background/Childhood Paul Gauguin's interest in art began during his childhood. He painted in his free time, and often visited art galleries. He bought many of the artworks created by emerging artists of his time. Beginnings in Art Art Training Gauguin had no formal art training, though he did paint with several famous artists. He formed a friendship with Pissarro, who introduced him to many other artists. Gauguin rented a studio to show Impressionist painting exhibitions, and painted with Pissarro, and occasionally Cézanne over two summer vacations. Theo Van Gogh was his manager, and he recommended that Gauguin meet with his brother, Vincent Van Gogh. Gauguin painted with Van Gogh for 9 weeks, but they didn't get along well, and things went sour when Van Gogh cut off his own ear. Vision after the Sermon This painting is set against a bright red background of dirt, with the branch of a tree cutting across the scene diagonally, showing an angel with golden wings and a blue robe wrestling with a man in a very dark green robe in the upper right hand corner. On the opposite side of the branch, it shows eleven women in their church outfits, and a priest in the lower right hand corner. A cow is standing in the upper left hand corner. Gauguin used elements of color and texture most effectively. He used primary colors for the majority of the painting in the blue dress and the red and yellow background.

He believes that no matter what others think of him, he believes that his choice to fall into temptation would lead him closer Tahitian Women on the Beach Gauguin used balance because there is a girl on each side of the painting so that the attention is not drawn just to one side. Gauguin used movement so that we look at the girl in the pink dress first, because she is facing us, then the girl in the red skirt, which leads us finally to the ocean behind them. Ta Matete I like how the colors contrast each other so that they stand out, and create movement throughout the painting, for example, the red dress and the yellow dress cause your eyes to move to the other woman's red and yellow skirt. I also like how he only used straight lines for the trees and horizon, and used different types of line everywhere else. I like how there is only one girl facing the viewer, putting emphasis on her. However, I dislike how he painted their faces so dark that you can hardly see them. to God. The halo shows this belief, that the serpent and the apples are actually his deliverance.
