Gauguin from The National Gallery, London

This fascinating cinema event opens with a brand-new documentary about the life and work of Paul Gauguin, one of the world’s most popular and important artists.

Filmed in Tahiti, France, the Marquesas Islands and the UK, this cinematic film will explore Gauguin’s extraordinary – and at times controversial – artistic achievement, with commentary from his descendants, artists and world experts.

It will be followed by an exclusive private view of the National Gallery exhibition Gauguin Portraits, just after it opens in London. Audiences will be given an engaging and lively guided tour by the exhibition curators and guest contributors, bringing this first ever exhibition of Gauguin’s portraits to the big screen with stunning close-ups and illuminating insights.

Why? Exploring the work of one of the world's most popular and important artists
