Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin (French: [øʒɛn ɑ̃ʁi pɔl ɡoɡɛ̃]; 7 June 1848 – 8 May 1903) was a French Post-Impressionist artist who was not well appreciated until after his death. Gauguin was later recognized for his experimental use of color and synthetist style that were distinguishably different from Impressionism. His work was influential to the French avant-garde and many modern artists, such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. Gauguin’s art became popular after his death and many of his paintings were in the possession of Russian collector Sergei Shchukin. He was an important figure in the Symbolist movement as a painter, sculptor, print-maker, ceramist, and writer. His bold experimentation with coloring 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.

1Civilization is what makes you sick.
2In art, all who have done something other than their predecessors have merited the epithet of revolutionary; and it is they alone who are masters.
3Many excellent cooks are spoilt by going into the arts.
4Stressing output is the key to improving productivity, while looking to increase activity can result in just the opposite.
5Concentrate your strengths against your competitor's relative weaknesses.
6Life being what it is, one dreams of revenge.
7Art requires philosophy, just as philosophy requires art. Otherwise, what would become of beauty?
8Life has no meaning unless one lives it with a will, at least to the limit of one's will. Virtue, good, evil are nothing but words, unless one takes them apart in order to build something with them; they do not win their true meaning until one knows how to apply them.
9There is always a heavy demand for fresh mediocrity. In every generation the least cultivated taste has the largest appetite.
10It is the eye of ignorance that assigns a fixed and unchangeable color to every object; beware of this stumbling block.
11Life is hardly more than a fraction of a second. Such a little time to prepare oneself for eternity!
12The history of modern art is also the history of the progressive loss of art's audience. Art has increasingly become the concern of the artist and the bafflement of the public.
13I shut my eyes in order to see.
14We never really know what stupidity is until we have experimented on ourselves.
15Art is either plagiarism or revolution.
