Hardcover New Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was one of the most famous pioneers of Post-Impressionism. He had been a Parisian stockbroker, devoted family man, art collector, and ... Sunday painter for over a decade when he set sail for the South Seas in 1891. Finding inspiration in the arts of ancient and primitive cultures, he began to create curiously abstract, vibrantly colored paintings and crude, carved reliefs. Few of these works were appreciated during Gauguin's lifetime, but their strange, innovative brilliance gradually became recognized and profoundly influenced twentieth-century art. This volume presents paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints by Gauguin that attest to his genius, all works drawn from public and private collections in New York, including more than fifty from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Even though he abandoned his wife and four children for the life of a self-described "savage" in the South Seas, Gauguin wrote to them constantly. This contradictory and brilliant painter is the subject of a catalog for a recent show at the Metropolitan Museum that celebrates Gauguin collecting in New York State. It is unique because rather than focusing on a theme in the artist's work, it includes a whole range of his paintings from both public and private sources. All the works on display are reproduced in the catalog, which offers 134 color and 88 black-and-white illustrations of Gauguin's paintings, sculptures, drawings, woodcuts, and watercolors. The first chapters, which are interspersed with quotations from his many letters, give a chronological account of the artist's remote venues in the South Seas. Later chapters review the role various New York collectors played in establishing Gauguin's reputation and key shows that catapulted him into public consciousness. The final chapter offers technical analysis of the paintings, providing insight into how a major museum appraises the work. This book demonstrates the contributions New Yorkers have made to recognizing this great French painter. Recommended for special, public, and academic libraries.-Ellen Bates, New York Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

A companion to an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York from June to October 2002.
