This summer the Art Institute of Chicago will host an ambitious exhibition of work by post-impressionist master Paul Gauguin organized by the AIC, the Musee d’Orsay, and the Reunion des musees nationaux-Grand Palais. “Gauguin: Artist as Alchemist” is the first exhibition of the artist’s work to explore his radical experiments in the applied arts including painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking and decorating. Including 240 works spanning from his early Impressionistic pieces to his later works from Tahiti and Hiva Oa, the exhibition showcases the artist’s clever use of materials developed from physical or financial limitations or simply the desire to try something new. The exhibition will be on view at the Art Institute of Chicago June 25, 2017 – September 10, 2017 and will then travel to the Grand Palais in Paris. See the Paul Gauguin Print Collection.
