The exhibition Gauguin l’Alchimiste, at the Grand Palais from the 10th of October 2017 to the 22nd of January 2018, recounts the impressive career of someone who is considered to be one of the greatest pioneers of Modern Art, and a major artistic figure of the 19th century. The exhibition puts the emphasis on this multi-talented artist’s creative process and exploration of each medium. Gauguin will create paintings, drawings, engravings, sculptures, ceramics, etc. while keeping the repetition of themes and patterns at the heart of his work. He will be a decisive influence on fauvism and expressionism.
