17 February–22 April, Munch Museum: A rare opportunity to be acquainted with the outstanding graphic works of Paul Gaugin and Edvard Munch.
A rare opportunity to be acquainted with the outstanding graphic works of Paul Gauguin and Edvard Munch.
Paul Gauguin (1848–1903) and Edvard Munch (1863–1944), two artists who probably never met each other, were key figures in the development of modern art at the end of the 19th century. They experimented their way to artistic expressions that depict human life in new and engaging ways. They both grounded their art in thoughts and feelings, and remind us to look into ourselves and focus on the long-lasting impressions that art is able to create.
The exhibition With eyes closed – Gauguin and Munch shows a large number of graphic prints, but also paintings and sculptures that document the artists’ experimental approaches across different mediums. In addition to a complete presentation of Gauguin’s most important graphic works, the exhibition contains a selection of other seminal works: three oil paintings and other rare objects such as ceramics, wood carvings, print plates and copies of Gauguin’s own satirical newspaper Le Sourire (‘the smile’).
