Gaugain and the Voyage to the Exotic

9 Oct - 13 Jan. The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum dedicates an exhibition to the role played by Tahiti in the work of French expressionist Paul Gauguin.

His primitive painting style was revived and inspired by the exoticism he experienced on the largest of the French Polynesian islands in the South Pacific.

The exhibition also examines how travelling to exotic lands influenced and transformed the art of other late 19th- and early 20th-century artists such as Matisse, Kandinsky, Klee and Macke.

With its comprehensive selection of works, the show asks to what extent this collective travelling experience conditioned modern art.
