Gauguin the alchemist

Galeries nationales
- 11 October 2017 - 22 January 2018


On the strength of a collection of over 200 of the artist's works , Gauguin the alchemist is an exceptional journey into this major artist’s fascinating creative process.
It is the first exhibition of its kind to study in depth the remarkable complementarity of the artist’s creations in the field of painting, sculpture, graphic and decorative arts. It focuses on the modernity of Gauguin’s creative process (1848-1903), and his ability to constantly push the limits of each medium.

This exhibition is organised by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux – Grand Palais, the Etablissement Public des musées d’Orsay et de l’Orangerie, and the Art Institute of Chicago.

This exhibition is organized with the support of Mazars, Nexity, Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne, and Palais des Thés.
