Not only did he paint a landscape, but he did so with a palate knife! I would have never guessed this painting to have been by Paul Gauguin. The style we learn to be associated with his work is flat, 2-dimensional, saturated colour.  This painting has the turbulence of Van Gogh, and the light of Corot and the composition that Cézanne has applied. But it’s Gauguin!
