28 Sept-9 Jan 2005. Running jointly at Madrid's Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Fundacin Caja Madrid, the exhibition is principally a retrospective of Paul Gauguins works but also includes contributions from artists connected to him during the late 1800s, including Czanne, Vuillard, Degas, Bonnard, Picasso, Pisarro, and especially Van Gogh. Gauguin was the first to question traditional forms of painting that remained prevalent during the Impressionist period and eventually abandoned them to develop a purer more symbolic style. The 186 paintings by Gauguin in the exhibition are mainly on show at the Thyssen and chart this evolution in the artists work over the period 1884-1891. The displays at the Fundacin Caja Madrid focus on Gauguins influence on following generations of painters particularly those of the Nabis circle.
