This exhibition – organised by the Art Institute of Chicago and the Musée d’Orsay and Grand Palais in Paris – is the most in-depth examination to date of Gauguin’s radical experiments with the applied arts, underscoring his highly personal achievements not only as a painter but also as a sculptor, ceramist, printmaker, and decorator. Drawing on new research into the his working processes, the exhibition sheds light on Gauguin’s identity as an artist-artisan. It features around 240 works, including the largest-ever public presentation of his ceramics, the reunion and display of related works side-by-side, and a selection of ethnographic objects that reveal his sources of inspiration. Find out more about the Gauguin exhibition from the Art Institute of Chicago’s website.
