    (October 3, 1867-January 23, 1947)
    Born in Fontenay-aux-Roses, France
    Founding member of Les Nabis, a group of Post-Impressionist avant-garde artists
    Briefly worked as a government official
    Painted 'Les Parisiennes' (1893), 'Two Dogs in a Deserted Street' (1894), 'The Letter' (1906), 'Cats on the Railing' (1909), 'The Dining Room in the Country' (1913), 'The Green Blouse' (1919), 'Young Women in the Garden' (1921-1923, 1945-1946), and 'The Almond Tree in Blossom' (1947)
    Died in Le Cannet, France
    He painted in the Impressionist style even though it was no longer the trending art form of his day.
    He often painted his wife nude in the bathtub.
    He often sacrificed form for color in his paintings.
    Picasso called his art palette a 'potpourri of indecision'.
    He abandoned 'Young Women in the Garden' when his mistress committed suicide, and didn't rework on it until his wife's own death.
    Many of his paintings' subjects come from simple things, yet he managed to adorn them by playing with the perspective.
    He wanted to emphasize the connections between his art and France's classical heritage by basing his subjects on Hellenistic art.
    Many of his paintings are biographical and narrative in nature so as to tell the viewers a story.
    His main goal in painting was to investigate the substance of paint in order to understand its meaning and role in art.
