Paul Gauguin

The WPI is continuing to update the catalogue raisonné of Paul Gauguin, which was originally published by the Wildenstein Institute in 1964. Our first digital update documents artworks executed between 1891 and 1903. The next installment will feature artworks executed during the Breton period (1889–1891) and will be accompanied by a digital monograph on the topic authored by Sylvie Crussard. The WPI will continue to make a host of archival resources and online programming available.

Thirty years after Georges Wildenstein published Gauguin’s first catalogue raisonné, his son Daniel entirely reworked it in two volumes, which survey the youth and early maturity of Paul Gauguin. Each work’s notice offers detailed analysis of Gauguin’s artistic development, and contextualizes his work in relation to contemporary socio-cultural issues.
