Exhibition Gauguin's Vision
Gauguin's Vision will bring together works by the Post-Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin, his immediate mentors such as Paul Cézanne and Edgar Degas, and his younger contemporaries, including Emile Bernard, Paul Sérusier and Maurice Denis.
Drawing on prestigious public and private collections, it will offer the viewer an unrepeatable chance to understand Vision of the Sermon in a rich context, exploring the biographical, pictorial and cultural circumstances that enabled Gauguin to make such a radical statement in paint in 1888.
This will be the first time a concentrated exhibition has been devoted to this arresting and complex painting, to its stylistic and thematic origins, critical impact and history.
