“Painting is the most beautiful of all the arts. In it, all sensations are condensed; contemplating it, everyone can create a story at the will of his imagination and – with a single glance – have his soul invaded by the profoundest recollections.” Paul Gauguin
Paul Gauguin (1848–1903) is one of the most famous artists of the modern era. His vibrantly colourful pictures, which speak of a lost paradise on Earth, fascinate the viewer. The exhibition is the most ambitious project in the history of the Fondation Beyeler and at the same time the finest exhibition devoted to Paul Gauguin in the past 60 years in Switzerland, bringing together outstanding and ground-breaking works of the highest calibre. Already being celebrated as the European cultural highlight of 2015, the exhibition presents some 50 masterpieces by the great French master, including his world-famous Tahiti paintings.
