This beautifully illustrated full-color hardback explores the life and work of one of the leading lights of Post-Impressionism - Paul Gauguin.

Gauguin's vision of a tropical arcadia in the South Seas has beguiled generations of gallery goers, but a close look at his life and art reveals a complex man in constant search for a primitive paradise that was elusive. Caroline Bugler explores Gauguin's extensive travels and artistic experiments, many of them driven by a strong desire to explore the unknown, and to discover what he saw as the 'savage' aspect of his own nature.

Examples of his work are included, such as Tahitian Women on the Beach and Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?. These are featured alongside timelines and feature spreads on key themes, including Gauguin's tumultuous time living with Van Gogh in Arles.

This new addition to The Great Artists series tells the story of this astonishingly original artist, who bent the rules in art and life.
