Emile Bernard (1868-1941) was a French Post-Impressionist painter associated with the Pont-Aven school, he met Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and later, Paul Cézanne.

His most radical works were painted during his youth, in the years 1887-1892 where he participated in the stylistic innovations of the late nineteenth century: he inaugurated Cloisonnism with Louis Anquetin and Paul Gauguin. His research of simplification led him to synthetism and symbolism. He leaves to Egypt in 1893 where he lived until 1904. From 1893 he gradually evolved towards a return to classicism inspired by the old masters as the Italian primitives or later Venetian painters and also Raphael, Nicolas Poussin or Diego Velasquez.
