Art History Illustrated
“Should Gauguin Be Canceled?”
Thursday, June 30, 2022
How much do we want to admire Paul Gauguin? His attempt to escape civilization led him to abandon his family and ultimately to live in Tahiti, where he amassed a collection of child-mistresses, many of whom were also his models. Can we separate his paintings from his person?
Join us for our “Art History Illustrated” talk series, held the third* Thursday of every month at 6:30 p.m. This monthly illustrated talk series is presented by art historian Brenda Edgar, in collaboration with the Carnegie Center for Art and History.
*This program will be held on the fifth Thursday.
