Collecting Gauguin Gallery
THE COURTAULD Gallery holds the most important collection of works in the United Kingdom by the Post-Impressionist master Paul Gauguin (1848-1903). Assembled by the pioneering collector Samuel Courtauld (1876-1947), it includes five major paintings, ten prints and one of only two marble sculptures ever created by the artist.
This special summer display – Collecting Gauguin: Samuel Courtauld in the ’20s – presents the complete collection together with the loan of two important works by Gauguin formerly in Courtauld’s private collection: Martinique Landscape (Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh) and Bathers at Tahiti (Barber Institute of Fine Arts, University of Birmingham) along with two double-sided drawings and archival material from the Gallery’s collection.
