Gauguin In Tahiti: Paradise Lost

Sunday 10th-Wednesday 13th May 2020

In 1891 Gauguin left Marseille for the Pacific, marking the beginning of a journey towards the essence of life and art, and forging his destiny as one of the greatest modern painters who ever lived.

GAUGUIN IN TAHITI will take us on the trail of a story that has become myth. Through Tahiti and Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia, we will experience the landscapes that inspired Gauguin, in the places where he built houses with bamboo and leaves, and discovered light and colours which changed his painting forever.

This stunning state-of-the-art cinema event will also bring us to Paris, Bretagne, Edinburgh, and to the most prestigious art museums of the United States, where most of his masterpieces are preserved: The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; The National Gallery of Art in Washington; and The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
