In October-December 1888, following the persistent suggestions of his art-dealer, Theo van Gogh, Gauguin visited the man's brother, Vincent, in Arles. His stay with the sick artist, whom he disliked and even despised as a painter, and never bothered to conceal this, finished after a Van Gogh cut off his own ear. His rediscovery of the merits of Degas--especially in his pastels--all combined with his own streak of megalomania to produce a style that had little in common with the thoughtful lyricism of impressionism.
Style: French Post-Impressionist.
