    A new exhibition is celebrating one of the France's most famous painters, Paul Gauguin, in Paris.

    His distinctive style influenced a younger generation of artists from Picasso to Matisse. Gauguin is best known for his paintings of life in French Polynesia.

    But his time there remains controversial, and is often skipped over in appreciations of his work.

    Al Jazeera's Natacha Butler reports from Paris.
