Have you visited the Paul Gaugin Exhibition at the Kunsthaus Zurich? Running until the 20th January 2013 it explores the small but diverse and innovative repertoire of graphic works, most of them woodcuts that Gaugin created. Paul Gauguin (1848 – 1903) is universally celebrated as one of the founding fathers of modern painting but it is in woodcuts that he found the ideal expressive medium for his non-illusionistic style.
The exhibition presents almost the whole of Gauguin’s graphic work, with some 60 plates of supreme quality and the utmost rarity. For more information click here.
You can also buy some of the prints as posters at the Kunsthaus Shop if you are looking for a souvenir!
