'Beach at Le Pouldu 1889' by Paul Gaugin Canvas Art Print
This gallery-wrapped landscape print on canvas is a reproduction of Paul Gauguin's "Beach at Le Pouldu" (1889). In this point in his career, Gauguin was making the switch from Impressionism to later Post-Impressionist movements, such as Symbolism. This is evident with his use of blocked out shapes and muted colors. Gauguin's fluid brushstrokes and soft colors make this piece soothing and relaxing. One of the leading artists of the Post-Impressionism movement, he specialized in country scenes and later in Tahitian landscapes, where he spent the majority of his career. He was an important figure in the Symbolist movement. His work functions as a bridge to such movements as Primitivism, Symbolism, Synthetism and the return to pastoral subjects.
