Paul Gauguin (1848-1903): As the world turned towards the Industrial Revolution, a group of artists turned back to what they believed to be primitive sources of inspiration. Abandoning the academic style that had dominated Western painting for centuries, the Post-Impressionists sought to reinvent what a painting could be about. Chief amongst these artists was Paul Gauguin, who abandoned a middle-class life style in pursuit of artistic purity. His journey would eventually have him leave France for the colonies of Tahiti.
