Gauguin. Portraits - Exhibition catalogue
Accompanying the ground-breaking exhibition Gauguin: Portraits, this publication marks the first in-depth investigation of Gauguin's portraits, revealing how the artist expanded the possibilities of the genre in new and exciting ways.
Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) broke with accepted conventions and challenged audiences to expand their understanding of visual expression. Nowhere is this phenomenon more evident than in his portraits, a genre he remained engaged with throughout all phases of his career.
A welcome addition to the scholarship on one of the 19th century's most innovative and controversial artists, this handsomely illustrated volume contains over 160 illustrations, presenting fascinating insights into the crucial role that portraiture played in Gauguin's overall artistic practice.
