The Yellow Christ shows the crucifixion of Christ taking place in nineteenth-century northern France as Breton women are gathered in prayer. The bold outlines and flatness of the forms in this painting are typical of the cloisonnist style. Gauguin said he chose yellow to convey how he felt about the isolated life and piety of the peasants, several of whom are pictured here dressed in their distinctive regional costume and kneeling at the foot of the cross during the evening hour of Angelus—a Catholic prayer recited daily at 6 am, noon, and 6 pm. The simplicity and primitive directness of the region’s peasants greatly appealed to Gauguin, who made his famous protest against Western sophistication by exiling himself to the South Seas not long after completing this painting.

Paul Gauguin (1848 - 1903) was a French Post-Impressionist artist who was not well appreciated until after his death.

Gauguin is now recognized for his experimental use of color and synthetist style that were distinctly different from Impressionism.

He was an important figure in the Symbolist moment. His bold experimentation with color led directly to the Sythetist style of modern art.
