The National Gallery is #19 in our London Bucket List

This important new exhibition will be the first-ever to be totally devoted to the portraits of Paul Gauguin.

Exploring Gauguin's shift away from Impressionism towards Symbolism in the later years of his life, the exhibition uses fifty works in a variety of media including paint, paper and three-dimensions, and also unites several images of the same sitter from different collections around the world, giving us a unique opportunity to see how Gauguin treated the same subject in different media over time.

Gauguin managed to make his portraits express deep meanings beyond the personality of the sitter, for example, in his self-image as Christ in the Garden of Olives.
