The painting as a surface covered with colors: one of the most fascinating painters of the late 1800s.
Non-conformist, original, inspired, courageous, restless: Paul Gauguin is one of the most fascinating painters of the late 1800s, and one of the few to resist the glittering but facile charms of Impressionist Paris. To contrast the difficulties and disappointments of everyday life Gauguin turns to the pursuit of purity and beauty, ready to abandon everything on a voyage to the far reaches of the planet. From Brittany to Tahiti, from the French countryside to the Marquis Islands, Gauguin leads us on a surprising, marvelous journey.
