Gauguin the Impressionist. Blue Roofs (1884) was painted by the French artist Paul Gauguin (1808-1903). It may not be the colorful, Primitivist type of work that Gauguin is best known for today, but it shows where some of those ideas came from. It is painted in a more traditional Impressionist style. This work is painted in the city of Rouen during a difficult time in Gauguin’s life. He had just lost his job as a stock trader, and now he was trying to find all sorts of odd jobs in Rouen to financially support his family, while trying to become a full-time painter. And he was also in a difficult situation with his wife, which led to a divorce soon after. Only a few years later, Gauguin started to incorporate more colors into his works, and intentionally flattened the perspective, resulting in the iconic works he made in French Polynesia. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FineArts #ArtoftheDay #Gauguin #PaulGauguin #BlueRoofs #FrenchArt #FrenchArtist #FrenchPainter #Impressionism #Rouen
