An unprecedented exploration of Gauguin's works in various media, from works on paper to clay and furniture Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was a creative force above and beyond his legendary work as a painter. Surveying the full scope of his career-spanning experiments in different media and formats--clay, works on paper, wood, and paint, as well as furniture and decorative friezes--this volume delves into his enduring interest in craft and applied arts, reflecting on their significance to his creative process. Gauguin: Artist as Alchemist draws on extensive new research into the artist's working methods, presenting him as a consummate craftsman--one whose transmutations of the ordinary yielded new and remarkable forms. Beautifully designed and illustrated, this book includes essays by an international team of scholars who offer a rich analysis of Gauguin's oeuvre beyond painting. By embracing other art forms, which offered fewer dominant models to guide his work, Gauguin freed himself from the burden of artistic precedent. In turn, these groundbreaking creative forays, especially in ceramics, gave new direction to his paintings. The authors' insightful emphasis on craftsmanship deepens our understanding of Gauguin's considerable achievements as a painter, draftsman, sculptor, ceramist, and printmaker within the history of modern art.
French artist Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin (1848–1903) once reproached the Impressionists for searching “around the eye and not at the mysterious centre of thought.” But what did he mean by this enigmatic phrase? In this innovative investigation into Gauguin’s art and thought, Dario Gamboni illuminates Gauguin’s quest for this “mysterious centre” and offers a fresh look at the artist’s output in all media—from ceramics and sculptures to prints, paintings, and his large corpus of writings. Foregrounding Gauguin’s conscious use of ambiguity, Gamboni unpacks what the artist called the “language of the listening eye.” Gamboni shows that the interaction between perception, cognition, and imagination was at the core of Gauguin’s work, and he traces a line of continuity in them that has been previously overlooked. Emulating Gauguin’s wide-ranging curiosity with literature, psychology, theology, and the natural sciences—not to mention the whole of art history—this richly illustrated book provides new insight into the life and works of this well-known yet little understood artist.

Staging the Artist
Restoring the role of theatrical performance as both subject and trope in the aesthetics of self-representation, Staging the Artist questions how nineteenth-century French and Belgian artists self-consciously fashioned their identities through their art and writings. This emphasis on performance allows for a new understanding of the processes of self-fashioning which underlie self-representation in word and image. Claire Moran offers new interpretations of works by major nineteenth-century figures such as Paul Gauguin and Edgar Degas, and addresses the neglected topic of the function of theatre in the development of modern visual art. Incarnating Baudelaire's metaphor of the artist as an actor ever-conscious of his role, the artists discussed "Courbet, Ensor and Van Gogh, among others" employed theatre as both a thematic source and formal inspiration in their painting, writings and social behaviour. Moran argues that what renders this visual, literary and social performance modern is its self-consciousness, which in turn serves as a model with which to challenge pictorial convention. This book suggests that tracing modern performance and artistic identity to the nineteenth century provides a greater understanding not only of the significance of theatre in the development of modern art, but also highlights the self-conscious staging inherent to modern artistic identity.

The Liberation of Painting
The years before World War I were a time of social and political ferment in Europe, which profoundly affected the art world. A major center of this creative tumult was Paris, where many avant-garde artists sought to transform modern art through their engagement with radical politics. In this provocative study of art and anarchism in prewar France, Patricia Leighten argues that anarchist aesthetics and a related politics of form played crucial roles in the development of modern art, only to be suppressed by war fever and then forgotten. Leighten examines the circle of artists—Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris, František Kupka, Maurice de Vlaminck, Kees Van Dongen, and others—for whom anarchist politics drove the idea of avant-garde art, exploring how their aesthetic choices negotiated the myriad artistic languages operating in the decade before World War I. Whether they worked on large-scale salon paintings, political cartoons, or avant-garde abstractions, these artists, she shows, were preoccupied with social criticism. Each sought an appropriate subject, medium, style, and audience based on different conceptions of how art influences society—and their choices constantly shifted as they responded to the dilemmas posed by contradictory anarchist ideas. According to anarchist theorists, art should expose the follies and iniquities of the present to the masses, but it should also be the untrammeled expression of the emancipated individual and open a path to a new social order. Revealing how these ideas generated some of modernism’s most telling contradictions among the prewar Parisian avant-garde, The Liberation of Painting restores revolutionary activism to the broader history of modern art.

This first comprehensive research guide and annotated bibliography of Paul Gauguin includes information on more than 1500 books and articles on the artist as well as a comprehensive chronology and list of exhibitions. The secondary bibliography is arranged by topics and includes citations on the artist's life and career, his relationships with contemporary artists in France, including Vincent van Gogh, his life and work in Panama, Martinique, Tahiti, and the Marquesas Islands, his oeuvre in general and in various media, self-portraits, iconography, and more. The French artist Paul Gauguin continues to be a larger-than-life figure whose mystique exerts its spell on popular, critical, and scholarly minds. Consequently, the available literature on the artist is copious and marked by diversity of opinion on every aspect of his life and work. From the first book-length biography of Gauguin written by Louis Brouillon in 1906, interest in Gauguin has continued unabated and, since 1959, critical interest in the artist's drawings, prints, sculptures, and art works in other media has dramatically increased. Russell T. Clement has compiled the first comprehensive research guide and annotated bibliography on Gauguin. This volume encompasses primary materials by Gauguin including those published during the artist's lifetime and those published posthumously; contemporary accounts and criticism of Gauguin's life and work published through 1906; descriptions of the artist's oeuvre; a lengthy secondary bibliography; and a section that catalogs exhibitions of Gauguin's work between 1884 and 1989. While concentrating on printed materials, this guide also includes selected manuscripts--in all, more than 1500 books and articles are cited. For entries where titles give incomplete or unclear information about works and their content, the author provides brief annotations. Following a biographical sketch and chronology, the primary bibliography lists articles, essays, letters, manuscripts, and sketch books of Gauguin and then accounts and critiques of Gauguin's life and work published through 1906. The main part of the bibliography and research guide, the secondary bibliography, lists monographs, catalogues, dissertations, theses, periodical literature, films, sound recordings and musical scores, and selected newspaper articles. Substantial book reviews and exhibition reviews are also included. Arranged by topic, the secondary bibliography also includes citations on Gauguin's relationships with contemporary artists in France, his work in Panama and Martinique, his work and life in Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands, and his oeuvre in general. Not just a list of sources but a complete research guide, this volume deserves a place in every research library collection.
