About the Lecture
The subject of this talk are two distinctive examples of the work of Paul Gauguin and Pierre Auguste Renoir ( respectively ) – both major figures in 19th century art. Renoir, a member of the Impressionist group of artists, characteristically celebrated Parisian life in his paintings. By contrast Gauguin turned his back on “filthy Europe” and attempted to find an unspoiled earthly paradise in the South seas.
