A new assessment of Gauguin’s involvement with—and notable impact upon—the Impressionist movement


"This pioneering book takes a close look at [Gauguin’s] formative years: the period in which he slowly transformed himself into the Gauguin we know. It is an essential for all true admirers of the artist."—Martin Gayford, The Sunday Telegraph

"This book should lead to a new evaluation of sculpture and decorative arts in Gauguin's work, and to a new understanding of the artist's place within the Impressionist movement. . . . Essential."—Choice
