About

Join Deaf presenter John Wilson to learn more about Paul Gauguin and his work through his portraits.

Spanning his early years as an artist through to his later years spent in French Polynesia, the exhibition shows how the French artist revolutionised the portrait.

Featuring about 50 works, the exhibition includes paintings, works on paper, and three-dimensional objects in a variety of media, from public and private collections worldwide. 

This session will be led by a Deaf lecturer in British Sign Language.
