This major retrospective is the most important one dedicated to Paul Gauguin

in Switzerland for sixty years, exhibiting the various self-portraits of the artist as well as visionary canvases and a spiritual imprint dating from his sojourn in Brittany. But above all, this exhibition gives prominence to the world-renowned paintings that Gauguin created in Tahiti. Here, the artist celebrates the perfection of an unsullied world linking nature and culture, mysticism and exoticism, dream and reality in perfect harmony. To compliment these canvases, the exhibition also presents a selection of mysterious sculptures by Gauguin, which revives rare Southern Ocean art that has widely disappeared. Until 28th June
