Product Description

Gauguin: Metamorphoses

Winner of the Association of American Publisher's 2015 PROSE Award for Best Art Exhibition Catalogue.

Though Gauguin is best known as a pioneer of modernist painting, this book highlights a lesser-known but arguably even more innovative aspect of his work: the extraordinary prints and transfer drawings he created between 1889 and his death in 1903 and their relationship to his paintings and sculptures in wood and ceramic.

Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art and sumptuously illustrated with some 200 works, Gauguin: Metamorphoses explores the artist’s experimental techniques and demonstrates how his engagement with mediums other than painting ignited his creativity. 248 pages, 222 illustration.
