Émile Henri Bernard (1868 – 1941)

With friends like Paul Gaugin ,and Vincent Van Gogh, it's understandable why Emile Bernard is relatively overshadowed in Art History. Although he painted alongside his friends at Pont-Aven, producing similarly revolutionary artwork, he didn't have the dominant personalty of Gauguin, or the dramatic biography of the others to capture as much of the spotlight.  Still, he was perhaps the most articulate of the group, and outlived them by decades.
