Unappreciated until after his death, Gauguin is now internationally recognized for his vivid and experimental use of color and exaggerated body proportions.
His work was influential on the French avant-garde and many modern artists, such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, and he is well known for his relationship with Vincent and Theo van Gogh.
