Gauguin Exhibition. Tahitian Women on the Beach, (1891)

From 09 October 2012 to 13 January 2013 we will be able to enjoy again some paintings by the French painter Paul Gauguin. The post-impressionist painter was one of the most revolutionary painters from the 19th century, applying a new color gamma and creating a new different kind of watching the world.

This is a unique occasion to understand the world of Gauguin in Madrid.


Paul Gauguin’s flight to Tahiti, where he regained his primitive style via exoticism, is the guiding thread of this exhibition. Through a comprehensive selection of works by a groupo of late 19th and early 20th century artists it will illustrate of the world how travel to supposedly more authentic regions brought about a transformation in creative language. The exhibition shall also analyse the degree to which this experience conditioned the rise of modern art.


Curated by Paloma Alarcó, Chief Curator of Modern Painting at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, this exhibition will focus on the results of the artistic explorations undertaken by artists including Gauguin, Matisse, Kandinsky, Klee and Macke. It will also look at Gauguin’s influence on the German Expressionists and the French Fauves, emphasising his role as the creator of a new and exotic canon, the starting point for the avant-garde artistic idioms that arose in the early decades of the 20th century”.
