Pont-Aven School (French: École de Pont-Aven) is a term occupied by works of art iconographically due to Pont-Aven and its surroundings. Originally the term was focusing works of the artists' colony emerging there since the 1850s, and some decades later the work of the group of painters gathering around the artist Paul Gauguin in the early 1890s. Their work is characterised by the bold use of pure colour and Symbolist choice of subject matter.
