Gauguin: Metamorphoses

Most of us think of Gauguin as the painter of a lush tropical paradise, populated with beautiful brown women with flowers tucked into their hair. This exhibition from the Museum of Modern Art in New York City (MoMA) documents Gauguin's experiments in other mediums in addition to paint and canvas. Over the course of his lifetime, Gauguin worked in wood carving, ceramics, lithography, wood cut printing, monotype printing, transfer drawing, as well as drawing and writing. The exhibition features individual examples of these types of work, such as Head With Horns, 1848-1903, a wooden sculpture used as a background image on the website. Also included are a set of 11 installation shots showing the work in the galleries at MoMA, and three major print series: The Volpini Suite, 1889; Noa Noa (Fragrant Scent), 1893-94; and The Vollard Suite, 1898-99.
