Journey to the heart of creation with the exhibition Gauguin the Alchemist at the Grand Palais

Journey to the heart of creation with the exhibition Gauguin the Alchemist at the Grand Palais

The history of post-Impressionist art gives pride of place to the paintings of Paul Gauguin, whose name conjures up thoughts of images as dreamlike as their Breton or Polynesian inspirations.

After the first exhibition dedicated to the artist at the Grand Palais in 1989, and then the beautiful one in 2003 which focused on his Tahitian period, Gauguin the Alchemist broadens our perspective on the multiform work of someone who was simultaneously a painter, sculptor, engraver, ceramicist and writer.

Based around themes taken up by the artist, sometimes to the point of obsession, the chronological framework draws us from one work to another, and underlines the importance of experimentation in his creative process. The term alchemist is a superbly apt one to describe Gauguin, summarising several of his peculiarities, such as the idea of ​​an incessant quest without a real point of completion.
