Tears and fold
Gauguin and Emile Schuffenecker, a minor painter of the Pont-Aven school, first met in 1872. Both were then employed in a stockbroker's office. Until the early 1890s when they quarrelled, Schuffenecker gave great support to Gauguin. He encouraged Gauguin to take up a career as a painter, often inviting him to dine and, on a number of occasions, to stay. He also had the idea for the 1889 Exhibition at the Volpini Gallery, a key moment in Gauguin's influence on young painters.
