The Nabis were a group of Symbolist artists who took their name from the Hebrew word for “prophet.” Their use of color was greatly influenced by the anti-natural, opaque colors of Paul Gauguin. Instead of replicating the look of colors in nature, they used color more expressively and symbolically following Gauguin’s instruction to Paul Sérusier that if one saw green in a tree, the entire tree should be painted green. The simplified, flat planes of color, rounded forms, and the artist’s choice of cardboard as a support to obtain even greater flatness and opacity in the paint’s appearance are all hallmarks of Nabis work in the early 1890s.
