Paul Gauguin: Painting "The White Horse"

Gauguin was commissioned by a pharmacist to paint a white horse. When the painting was finished, the pharmacist rejected it with the following explanation: I wanted a painting with a white horse, while in this painting, the horse is green. The art-historic title of the picture is still "The White Horse" (Le cheval blanc) and is deemed as the most decorative of Gauguin’s paintings.
Original: Musée d'Orsay, Paris.

Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was a painter, sculptor and ceramist. He made a fundamental contribution to the art of the 20th century by developing shape and colour as an expression values.

It was only in 1872 that he took the Parisian stockbroker Paul Gauguin, who was born on the 7.6.1848, due to Claude-Emile Schuffenecker the approach to painting. He began collecting the works of the Impressionists and studied painting at the Colarossi Academy. He met Pissarro and Cézanne and worked with them, and exhibited with the Impressionists. In Pont-Aven he met Bernard, in Paris on Degas and the brothers Van Gogh. In 1890, Gauguin decided to emigrate, sold his paintings and embarked on the 4.4.1891 to Tahiti. In 1895, he was a single father for his five children, his wife which was a Danish woman and had married him in 1873, finally leaves his home. The following eight years in the South Pacific are again influenced by illness and financial problems that weigh so heavily that he wants to return to Paris. But his patrons in France, recommended him not to destroy the South Sea painter myth.

The pictures, which he regularly sent his art dealer Vollard show an exotic world of foreign culture and seemingly happy, people living at ease: the long-lost paradise. Full colour intensity, and beauty is his late work created in Tahiti that leaves no hint of Gauguin's painful years until his death on 05.08.1903 in Atuona Hiva Oa in the Marquesas Islands on Dominique.
