From 8 February to 28 June 2015, the Fondation Beyeler in Basel will stage the biggest Paul Gauguin special exhibition in half a century. No museum in the world is exclusively devoted to Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) making this retrospective of around 50 works gathered from museums and private collections in 13 countries one of the most important exhibitions ever of Gauguin’s colorful paintings.
The exhibition will focus mainly on the famous paintings Paul Gauguin created in Tahiti but will also include some of his multifaceted self-portraits and his visionary, spiritual paintings from his time in Brittany. It will also include a number of his sculptures that evoked the art of the South Seas. With such a rich oeuvre to select from, the exhibition is worth visiting and will certainly effect the market for his works.
