Never one to disappoint (did you see the Picasso exhibit in October 2010?) the Seattle Art Museum now presents a comprehensive study of Paul Gauguin’s work from French Polynesia. Gauguin’s fascination with exotic locations brings us a Post-Impressionist-meets-Polynesian-arts study with paintings, sculpture and works on paper.
The show also includes an exhibit of works from the Pacific that show European influence on artwork from the people of the Pacific Islands.
The exhibit opens this Thursday, February 9th.
Consider becoming a member of SAM, as members receive unlimited free access to the exhibit. Become a member or renew your membership in February and be entered to win a 7-night cruise for two to French Polynesia.
