Historical significance Primitivism was an art movement of late 19th century painting and sculpture; characterized by exaggerated body proportions, animal totems, geometric designs and stark contrasts. Gauguin recounts the astounding scene that followed, equal parts theatrical and full of sincere human tragedy: [Vincent] took a light absinthe. His wife took their five children to live with her parents in Copenhagen, Denmark. They concluded that the artists had agreed to give the self-mutilation version of the story to protect Gauguin.

He subsequently made an unsuccessful attempt with an overdose of arsenic.

Van Gogh had gone back to the house and had immediately cut off his ear close to the head. Written as a potboiler after he returned to France, there are two distinct parts of this book. Gauguin was very appreciative of Bernard's art and of his daring with the employment of a style which suited Gauguin in his quest to express the essence of the objects in his art.

Biography of Paul Gauguin

Once he had virtually abandoned his wife, his four children, and the entire art world of Europe, Gauguin's name and work became synonymous, as they remain to this day, with the idea of ultimate artistic freedom, or the complete liberation of the creative individual from one's original cultural moorings.

He wrote beseeching letters to Gauguin, and when the French artist sent him a self-portrait as part of their exchange of canvases, Van Gogh excitedly showed it around town as the likeness of a beloved friend who was about to come visit. Gauguin recounts the tempestuous emotional climates that seemed to sweep over Van Gogh unpredictably — the beginning of his descent into the mental illness that would be termed bipolar disorder a century later: During the latter days of my stay, Vincent would become excessively rough and noisy, and then silent.

His painting later evolved towards Synthetism in which neither form nor colour predominate but each has an equal role. At the age of seventeen he enlisted in the merchant marine people who work on commercial ships.
