GAUGUIN AND IMPRESSIONISM

Only in middle age did Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) become the now-familiar creator of "primitive" images of life in the South Seas. Before this, he was an important and influential member of the Impressionist movement, exhibiting regularly in the Impressionist exhibitions.

This revelatory book presents the first-ever survey of the subtle and beautiful works of this earlier phase of Gauguin's career - from 1875 to 1887 - when his distinctive boldness of color, brushwork, and composition began to emerge. It confirms the increasing appreciation of the young Gauguin's importance as an Impressionist painter, as well as his status as the finest sculptor of the group apart from Degas
