Émile Bernard: one of the leading figures inventing Cloisonnism and Synthetism
Bernard is known as a Post-Impressionist painter who had artistic friendships with Van Gogh, Gauguin and, at a later time, Cézanne. Most of his notable work was accomplished at a young age in the years 1886 through 1897.
Together with Gauguin he was one of the leading figures inventing Cloisonnism and Synthetism, two late 19th century art movements.
Less known is Bernard's literary work, comprising plays, poetry, and art criticism as well as art historical statements that contain first hand information on the crucial period of modern art to which Bernard had contributed.
