Gauguin the Alchemist - the man who proved that genius cannot be explained
His is a name that you may or may not be familiar with, yet Gauguin is perhaps best remembered as one of the most atypical painters of the second half of the 19th century. A versatile artist, he explored sculpture, ceramics, drawing and engraving with great ease, yielding to the whims of his genius and expressing himself according to his moods. As a pioneer of modern art, he had a career that was rich in adventure. Each new work was an occasion, but one through which certain motives and themes always appeared. It’s been said that Gauguin wanted to symbolise artistic universality, while recalling that the history of men was invariably repetitive.
Discover the works of one of the world's great artistic geniuses for yourself during your stay at Les Plumes Hotel. A retrospective of the artist's amazing career, the 'Gauguin: Artist as Alchemist' exhibition at the Grand Palais until 22nd January 2018 is a rare opportunity to see over 200 works including paintings, drawings, ceramics, engravings and sculptures. Laid out over several exhibition rooms, the event invites you to learn about the artist's techniques and explores his experimentation with various media. An essential outing for art lovers that's within easy reach of your comfortable room at Les Plumes.
