Eugene Henri Paul Gauguin (7 June 1848 – 8 May 1903) was a leading Post-Impressionist artist, painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramist and writer from France. His bold experimentation with colouring led directly to the Synthetist style of modern art while his expression of the inherent meaning of the subjects in his paintings, under the influence of the cloisonnist style, paved the way to Primitivism and the return to the pastoral. He was also an influential proponent of wood engraving and woodcuts as art forms.

Paul Gauguin in Southern VictoryEdit

In 1914, Anne Colleton sponsored an exhibit of modern art on loan from the Paris art schools. The exhibit, which was showcased at her plantation house on Marshlands, near St. Matthews, South Carolina, included several Paul Gauguin pieces.[1]
