Gauguin

Gauguin: one of the most extraordinary and illusive figures in modern art.

With subject matter that spanned the globe, from quasi-mediaeval life in rural Brittany to the lush and sensuous surroundings of the South Seas, Gauguin created not only the myth of his own persona, but also that of the ancient and fast-disappearing cultures he encountered.The first major Gauguin exhibition in Britain for 50 years includes not only paintings, but also examples of his uniquely powerful wood carvings.
