Paul Gauguin is often regarded as the representative painter of post-impressionist paintings, but in fact Gauguin was also one of the top ten artists under the influence of symbolism in the ninth century and was also regarded as the leader of symbolism. Impressionist and neo-impressionist painters tried their best to reproduce the natural things objectively, while Gauguin, influenced by the ideological trend of symbolism, wished to transcend the superficial truth and pursue the emotional truth under the surface. The analysis of him mainly focuses on his symbolism, but Paul Gauguin pursues mysterious art all his life and also reflects the mysterious side of the art country. His paintings are filled with an ineffable spirit. Based on the expression of Gauguin’s mysticism in his paintings, this paper mainly analyzes the theme of his paintings, its characteristic composition and color analysis, as well as his research on mysticism painting, and finally analyzes the mysticism color of Gauguin’s paintings and the profound meaning of the mysterious color behind his paintings.
