About the art in this issue:
Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was a leading French painter of the postimpressionist period whose lush color, two-dimensional forms and subject matter helped form the basis of modern art. His development of a conceptual method of representation was a decisive step for 20th-century art. After spending a short period with Vincent van Gogh in Arles (1888), Gauguin increasingly abandoned imitative art for expressiveness through color. In 1891, he sailed to the Tropics where he remained  for the rest of his life, first in Tahiti and later in the Marquesas Islands.
