Examine how Gauguin turned his back on tradition to revolutionise portraiture in the late 19th century, in a landmark exhibition at the National Gallery.
Gauguin Portraits draws on loans from major museums and works lent by private collectors, with paintings, drawings, sculptures and ceramics combining to showcase the talents of this pioneering artist.
Learn more about what lies behind Gauguin’s works, find out why he often depicted himself as Christ in self-portraits, and uncover more about his life in Brittany and Polynesia, which encouraged him to create some of his most famous paintings.
Gauguin’s relationships with fellow artists are also put under scrutiny, from turbulent friendships with Van Gogh and his sitter de Haan, to his work inspiring the likes of Picasso and Matisse to create their own unique portraits.
