Exhibition: “Gauguin: Artist as Alchemist”

Gauguin is one of the most important painters in the 19th century in Paris. He is mostly known for his painting of Tahitian women. In October, there will be an exhibition which dedicates solely to his remarkable career and works.

The exhibition “Gauguin: Artist as Alchemist” showcases some 240 works including paintings, ceramics, sculptures, engravings and drawings. It begins with Gauguin’s early struggles with Impressionism, then his time in Brittany and Martinique, to his adventure in Tahiti and subsequent return to Paris. This retrospective concludes with his homecoming to Tahiti and his final years on the Marquesas Islands.

The exhibition is held in collaboration with the Art Institute of Chicago and Musée d’Orsay at the Grand Palais. Don’t miss out on such excellent chance to discover the artist’s experimentation and understand the creative process of this major artist.
