Paul Gauguin: The Breakthrough into Modernity

£14.99

This book is the first to devote attention to the Volpini suite: a series of prints that Gauguin (1848-1903) exhibited in monsieur Volpini's Cafe des Arts during the Paris Exposition of 1889. The 11 zincographs offer a fascinating overview of the key themes in the artist's work: from the exotic landscapes of Martinique to scenes of Brittany and Arles. The book also shows works by Gauguin and his friends closely linked to the Volpini suite. Gauguin created the series of prints later to become known as the Volpini suite at the instigation of the art dealer Theo van Gogh, as a way of drawing attention to his paintings.
