Near the coast of Brittany, another group of artist clustered in Pont Aven under Paul Gauguin, drawing inspiration from Japanese prints. Influenced also by Japanese prints, another group of artist known as the Nabis started to paint with simple forms and color applied in large patches. Rather than copying nature, they sought to convey the emotions and mysticism that nature aroused. Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Denis, Paul Sérusier, and Édouard Vuillard participated in this group, active between 1888 and 1896.
