Paul Gauguin was an innovative and influential artist, known for his unconventional lifestyle, personality and embrace of nature and a simpler way of life. Gauguin: Voyage to Paradise will explore the botanical world that the Post-Impressionist artist encountered during his life and global travels in the late 19th century. The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to experience a selection of captivating images by the artist, alongside lush horticultural displays of some of the tropical plants that inspired him.
Dramatic woodcuts and other seldom seen works that Gauguin created on his journeys to French Polynesia, Brittany, Arles and Martinique will be on view. The exhibition will examine the artist’s romantic quest for a land that time forgot, his identification as a self-styled “savage,” as well as his own disillusionment upon reaching each “exotic” destination. Gauguin: Voyage to Paradise will also reveal how the artist blended both fine art and craft, and merged Western artistic traditions with the folklore of South Pacific cultures.
