This week’s competition prize is Paul Gauguin: The Mysterious Centre of Thought, by Dario Gamboni (Reaktion Books, £35). Click here for your chance to win.
Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin (1848–1903) reproached the Impressionists for searching ‘around the eye and not at the mysterious centre of thought.’ In his own work, therefore, Gauguin was pursuing a ‘mysterious centre’ – but what does this enigmatic phrase mean? In this book, Gamboni illuminates this quest, and takes a fresh look at Gauguin’s output in all media: from ceramics, sculptures, prints, drawings and paintings, to his large body of correspondence and writings. This innovative, in-depth investigation provides a new understanding of Gauguin’s art and thought, revealing a coherence and continuity previously overlooked.
For your chance to win simply answer the following question and submit your details here before midday on 17 July 2015.
