Gauguin is an important painter who lived between 1848-1903 and became a pioneer for his contemporaries with his artistic stance. Although he started painting at a late age, he proved himself in a short time with his devoted work, both theoretical and practical. Reacting to the nature-following feature of Impressionism towards which his contemporaries were oriented, innovations revealed its open artistic structure, arguing that emotion and state should be included alongside the impression. This innovative structure also opened the door for him to make exemplary studies on the relationship between painting and music within the scope of interdisciplinary art. Gauguin, who has a special interest in music, gave musical meaning to his paintings with color tones and often used the term "Color Orchestration" for his paintings. From this point of view, the aim of this study, which is shaped by the case study pattern, that is one of the qualitative research approaches, is to deal with the color orchestrations in Gauguin's paintings within a pictorial and musical framework. In this direction, five different paintings by Gauguin were chosen to create orchestration examples. By paying attention to the subject of the paintings and the stain values and timbres of the colors that make up the painting, instruments were determined to correspond to the color and orchestration examples were created with these instruments. As a result of revealing the relationship between color and sound with this study, Gauguin's "Colour Orchestration" idiom has been embodied.
