Paul Gauguin: Martinique Landscape

Martinique Landscape is an 1887 painting in the Post-Impressionist style by the leading French artist Paul Gauguin.

Paul Gauguin spent five months on the French Caribbean island of Martinique (now part of the Lesser Antilles) in 1887 when he was 37 years old. The Nei-Impressionist artist painted around twelve paintings during his stay here.

Not a lot is known about his time here, other than the fact that he was unemployed and eventually ran out of money.

Paul Gauguin’s painting Martinique Landscape can be found in the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
