Paul Gauguin spent thirty-four months in Pont-Aven and Pouldu, five times between 1886 and 1894. He made friends with about twenty painters, such as Charles Laval and Émile Bernard, with whom he had fruitful and sometimes stormy artistic exchanges. At a distance from Impressionism, he invented a style of painting that asserted itself by superimposed colored flat tints separated by rings, according to new principles of composition and formulation of space, establishing a new relationship between a theme, perceived in a symbolic way, and its plastic expression. This technique, which will be called "synthesis" or "synthetism", is one of the first breaks with traditional painting, and therefore one of the first steps in the genesis of modern art of the twentieth century.
