In this video, Paloma Alarcó, Chief Curator of Modern Painting at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, who has curated the exhibition explains the exhibition hosted from 9 October 2012 to 13 January 2013. The Gauguin and the Voyage to the Exotic exhibition includes 111 works which survey the period that opens with Gauguin’s visual experiments in the South Seas and continues with the artistic investigations of subsequent artists such as Emil Nolde, Henri Matisse, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee and August Macke, with the aim of revealing Gauguin’s influence on the early 20th century avant-garde movements.
