  • The Gauguin Atlas

    The Gauguin Atlas

    Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was an artist perpetually in search of new horizons. This fascinating visual tour reveals the full extent of Gauguin’s travels and their influence on his unique style. Gauguin’s several lengthy trips to Tahiti and the Marquesas between 1891 and the artist’s death, visits that provided the inspiration for many of his most famous canvases, are well known and documented here in rich detail. Less familiar are stories from his early years living with his family in Peru, which Gauguin would later describe as ‘idyllic,’ and his years in the French Navy, which would take him to numerous destinations including India.
