‘Colonialist, chauvinist, exploiter . . . Gauguin may have been all these things and more – but his faults are what make him great.’
Adrian Searle, The Guardian, 2010

As background to the National Gallery’s upcoming exhibition Gauguin Portraits author and art historian Dr. Marie-Anne Mancio explores the art and life of this post-impressionist master, from his self-promotion in Paris to his loutish behaviour in Tahiti.

As art critic Searle says, ‘Gauguin is an artist, both outsider and careerist, who is a little bit dodgy in a way that anyone acquainted with today's art world would recognise.’

Evening event with a glass of wine.
