Description

By Colta Ives and Susan Alyson Stein with Charlotte Hale and Marjorie Shelley

Post-Impressionist painter, Paul Gauguin (French, 18481903) began his legacy by traveling the world. His work reflected the diverse cultures of the places he visited, which included Africa, Micronesia, and South America, and often at the center of his work were depictions of women, often re-visioning female icons like Venus or Madonna. The Lure of the Exotic: Gauguin in New York Collections not only celebrates over one hundred pieces of art, but also examines the materials and techniques Gauguin used to create his work. The book also delves into the history of collecting and exhibiting Gauguins work in New York, specifically, and his acceptance in America.

256 pages, 222 illustrations (134 in full color). 9'' x 12''. Paper.
