Van Gogh Mu­seum, Am­s­ter­dam Show­ing un­til: 13 Jan­uary 2019

The Van Gogh Mu­seum presents Gau­guin & Laval in Mar­tinique, the first ever ex­hi­bi­tion de­voted to a cru­cial, but up un­til now ne­glected pe­riod, in the artis­tic ca­reer of Paul Gau­guin: the four months that he spent in Mar­tinique in 1887, to­gether with Charles Laval. The colour­ful, in­no­va­tive art­works that the two friends cre­ated on the is­land proved to have a huge im­pact on their artis­tic de­vel­op­ment and fu­ture ca­reers. Gau­guin & Laval in Mar­tinique unites a large num­ber of the paint­ings, draw­ings and sketches that the two French artists cre­ated on the Caribbean is­land for the first time. Many of the loans are part of pri­vate col­lec­tions and are oth­er­wise rarely ex­hib­ited or pub­lished, if ever at all.

Paul Gau­guin, Mar­tini­can Women, 1887, Pen­cil, black chalk and pas­tel on pa­per, pri­vate col­lec­tion
