ARTH 4456 Bad Boy Gauguin (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Thumb sucking self portraits in paintings and ceramics define one side of Paul Gauguin; the other comes off as an aged sophisticate. We will explore several dualities in the life and work of Gauguin (saint/sinner, French/Spanish, male/female, real/hallucinatory) against the art-historical and social background.
