The painting was made by Paul Gauguin (1848–1903). He was one of the most influential post-impressionist artists. Gauguin's experimental use of color and stark contrasts spearheaded the synthetism movement, which regarded form and color as equally important. Most of his paintings depict people or landscapes from French Polynesia since he spent many years in that region in search of inspiration. His artistic experiments influenced many avant-garde movements in the early 20th century as well as modern artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.
The accompanying print shows 'In the waves' painted in 1889. Painted at Pont-Aven in northwest France, this depiction of a nude figure throwing herself into the sea suggests a metaphor for a modern European woman forsaking civilization and abandoning herself to her natural, primitive instincts. The simplified lines and exaggerated colors, especially the contrasting green and orange, seem invented rather than observed from life. The original is now in the The Cleveland Museum of Art.
