A new exhibition is celebrating one of the France’s most famous painters, Paul Gauguin, in Paris.

His distinctive style influenced a younger generation of artists from Picasso to Matisse. Gauguin is best-known for his paintings of life in French Polynesia.

But his time there remains controversial, and is often skipped over in appreciations of his work.

Al Jazeera’s Natacha Butler reports from Paris.

Of course him raping children and killing does not matter to the French since that is how they became powerful. Till this day France gets money from the people the colonized. If the children were white it might be a different story.

So the guy was basically a pedophile and yet he is celebrated in France… Interesting.
