Gauguin by Britt Salvesen
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Gauguin is the fourth title to be published in the Art Institute of Chicago's Artists in Focus series, which features inexpensive, well-produced treatments of key figures in the history of Modern art. Works by Gauguin are well represented in the Art Institute's collection, which holds one of America's finest collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. Paul Gauguin is among one of the most popular artists of the Modern period. His lush, colorful works created a stir within the art world at the turn of the century and helped form the basis for Modern painting. Gauguin's unconventional lifestyle brought him to experience rural Brittany, Panama, Martinique, Tahiti, and later, the Marquesas Islands. His travels inspired some of the most exquisite and paradisiacal visions in painting. This accessible and thorough book will delight readers with quality reproductions of his most famous works. The publication of this book coincides with the exhibition Van Gogh and Gauguin: The Studio of the South at the Art Institute of Chicago, traveling to the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, and the publication of another Artists in Focus title: Van Gogh.
