Paul Gauguin Book
Paul Gauguin: Artist of Myth and Dream
By Stephen Eisenman. Hardcover.
Dive into Gauguin's entire artistic career, from his early impressionist works to his final masterpieces.
“Gauguin had clearly decided to violate social norms, destroy consecrated artistic standards and create a scandal wherever he went, and he was successful. He wanted to be a dissenter, a rebel, an outsider and a renegade, but through art he also wanted to rebuild the fantastic images of a Golden Age that had dominated his mind from his first travels around the world.” (From the introductory essay by Eisenman.)
It features an incredible sampling of Gauguin's paintings and an absorbing introduction.
