Paul Gauguin was introduced into the Impressionist circle by Camille Pissarro and contributed major works to five of the eight Impressionist exhibitions between 1879 and 1886. During these years, he transformed himself from a banker-stockbroker into a professional artist and from a family man into a solitary searcher for artistic, moral, and spiritual truths. Yet this vital period of Gauguin's life has usually been dismissed as an awkward prelude to his brilliant career as an anti-Impressionist. This handsomely illustrated book reconsiders Gauguin's apprenticeship as an Impressionist and reassesses his contributions to the movement through the extraordinarily subtle and beautiful paintings, sculpture, and ceramic works he created during the years before 1887.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"'This pioneering book takes a close look at Gaugin's formative years: the period in which he slowly transformed himself into the Gauguin we know. It is an essential for all true admirers of the artist.' Martin Gayford, The Sunday Telegraph 'This book should lead to a new evaluation of sculpture and decorative arts in Gauguin's work, and to a new understanding of the artist's place within the Impressionist movement... Essential.' Choice"
