Gauguin: The Other World
“ Paul Gauguin: a life - in graphic novel form ”
Gauguin: The Other World captures the astonishing life of a man who was by turns a globe-trotting sailor, a brilliant stockbroker and an outcast painter. Fabrizio Dori paints a balanced and absorbing portrait of a fearless artist and flawed human being whose all-consuming passion - for art, for women and for himself - destroyed everything in its path. Gauguin's primitivist paintings won him few admirers in his own lifetime, but his radical break from Impressionism would pave the way for a new generation of artists, among them Pablo Picasso, Joan Míro and Henri Matisse.
