Visit of the exhibition GAUGUIN’S WORLD: TŌNA IHO, TŌNA AO at the National Gallery of Australia

Gauguin’s World: Tōna Iho, Tōna Ao offers a rare opportunity to experience the enduring art of French Post-Impressionist Paul Gauguin. Featuring some of his most recognised masterpieces, many of which were created in the Pacific region, the exhibition offers new perspectives on Gauguin’s life and work, his artistic influences and networks, as well as his historical impact and contemporary legacies.

Through painting, drawing, engraving, sculpture and the decorative arts, curator and former director of the Louvre Museum and Musée d’Orsay, Henri Loyrette, traces the trajectory of the artist’s distinctive works, from his impressionist beginnings to Polynesian visions. The exhibition will reveal that Gauguin belonged to the art and themes of his time and how contemporary perspectives can enable new readings of his work.

Their ethos has always been to create good food, good service in a homely, relaxed atmosphere. They strive to deliver this every day.
