Widely regards as one of the founding figures of modern art, French painter, sculptor and printmaker Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) is also considered on of the greatest of the Post-Impressionists. A pioneer in stressing the simple and the primitive in art, he produced works during his South Sea period that were richly colored and subtly modeled - a style that gradually emerged from the flat-contoured figures of his Breton interlude.
For this coloring book, illustrator Marty Noble has prepared black-and-white line renderings of 30 of Gauguin's finest paintings. Colorists can refer to the full-color reproductions of the actual paintings (shown on the covers) or add their own hues to each pictures. Among them are:
| Tahitian Landscape || Landscape Near Arles |
| Spirit of the Dead Watching || Breton Girls Dancing, Pont-Aven |
| The Moon and the Earth || Reverie |
| Woman Holding a Fruit || Self-Portrait with Palette |
| Still Life with Three Puppies || The White Horse |
| The Cellist || Woman with a Mango |
A wonderful introduction to the works of Paul Gauguin, this collection will delight coloring book fans as well as admirers of the great French artist. 32 pages.
