Émile Schuffenecker: not only friend of Gauguin, but an important Neo-impressionist painter

Émile Schuffenecker (8 December 1851 - 31 July 1934) was a french Post-Impressionist artist, painter, art teacher and art collector.

In the history of art, Schuffenecker is better known as the admirer, confidant, and protector of Paul Gauguin than as a painter. Nonetheless, contrary to what might be expected, he was not a follower of Gauguin and the Pont-Aven school. He learned about Impressionism from Pissarro and then studied under Carolus-Durand and Paul Baudry. He was a friend of Georges Seurat. His own work, however, tends to have been neglected since his death.
