A lesser-known aspect of Gauguin’s practice that is arguably even more innovative than his painting

  

THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, NEW YORK

Gauguin: Metamorphoses

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York
Edited by Starr Figura. Text by Elizabeth Childs, Hal Foster, Erika Mosier, Lotte Johnson.

"Tahitian Woman with Evil Spirit," recto. c. 1900, is reproduced from <I>Gauguin: Metamorphoses</I>.Gauguin: Metamorphoses explores the remarkable relationship between Paul Gauguin’s rare and extraordinary prints and transfer drawings, and his better-known paintings and sculptures in wood and ceramic. Created in several discrete bursts of activity from 1889 until his death in 1903, these remarkable works on paper reflect Gauguin’s experiments with a range of media, from radically "primitive" woodcuts that extend from the sculptural gouging of his carved wood reliefs, to jewel-like watercolor monotypes and large mysterious transfer drawings. Gauguin’s creative process often involved repeating and recombining key motifs from one image to another, allowing them to metamorphose over time and across mediums. Printmaking in particular provided him with many new and fertile possibilities for transposing his imagery. Though Gauguin is best known as a pioneer of modernist painting, this publication reveals a lesser-known but arguably even more innovative aspect of his practice. Richly illustrated with more than 200 works, Gauguin: Metamorphoses explores the artist’s radically experimental approach to techniques and demonstrates how his engagement with media other than painting--including sculpture, printmaking and drawing--ignited his creativity.
Painter, printmaker, sculptor and ceramicist, Paul Gauguin (1848–1903) left his job as a stockbroker in Paris for a peripatetic life traveling to Martinique, Brittany, Arles, Tahiti and, finally, the Marquesas Islands. After exhibiting with the Impressionists in Paris and acting as a leading voice in the Pont-Aven group, Gauguin’s efforts to achieve a "primitive" expression proved highly influential for the next generation of artists.

"Tahitian Woman with Evil Spirit," recto. c. 1900, is reproduced from Gauguin: Metamorphoses.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Time Out New York

As important as painting obviously was to Gauguin, this exhibit argues that his efforts in printmaking and drawing were just as significant.
