Paul Gauguin's vivid and sensuous paintings are among the most reproduced and recognisable in the history of art. Most books on the artist concentrate on one aspect of his story, whether it is the time he spent in Brittany, in Arles with his friend Vincent van Gogh or in the South Seas. By contrast, this concise and colourful introduction looks at his career in its entirety, reaching beyond the myths to discover one of the most fascinating and engaging artists of modern times.
Extensively illustrated, and written by an acknowledged expert on French art of the period, this is the perfect place to start for anyone interested in the life and work of this extraordinary artist.
Nancy Ireson is the Schroder Foundation Curator of Painting at the Courtauld Gallery, specialising in French art of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. She is the author of Interpreting Henri Rousseau.
