Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was an artist perpetually in search of new horizons. This fascinating visual tour reveals the full extent of Gauguin's travels and their influence on his unique style. Gauguin's several lengthy trips to Tahiti and the Marquesas between 1891 and the artist's death in 1901, visits that provided the inspiration for many of his most famous canvases, are well known and documented here in rich detail. Less familiar are stories from his early years living with his family in Peru, which Gauguin would later describe as "idyllic," and his years in the French Navy, which would take him to numerous destinations including India. Throughout the 1880s, as a young man starting a family and struggling to become established within the art world, the restless Gauguin moved often-within Paris, to Rouen, to Copenhagen, and back to Paris. Abundantly illustrated with hundreds of vibrant images, including archival material and the artist's own works, The Gauguin Atlas brings to life the places that Gauguin visited and lived. The book's handsome design seamlessly integrates maps and other images with an accessible and engaging text that narrates Gauguin's travels; what emerges is a vivid picture of an artist continually seeking new experience and inspiration for his art.
