Featuring about fifty works, the exhibition includes paintings, works on paper, and three-dimensional objects in a variety of media, from public and private collections worldwide. It also brings together multiple works of the same sitter from different collections scattered across the world, giving us the opportunity to see how Gauguin interpreted a model in different media over time.
Exhibition organised by the National Gallery and the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa. To coincide with the exhibition, a special event opens in UK cinemas from 15 October. For audiences nationwide, Gauguin from the National Gallery features a new biopic filmed in Tahiti, the Marquesas, France, and the UK and an exclusive filmed exhibition tour.
