Paul Sérusier was a French painter who was a pioneer of abstract art and an inspiration for the avant-garde Nabi movement, Synthetism and Cloisonnism. The painting, that became known as The Talisman, was created under the close supervision of Gauguin. It is an extreme exercise in Cloisonnism that approximates to pure abstraction.
