French Polynesia: Retracing the Journey of Artist Paul Gauguin While Making My Own
Amy S. Dane, world traveler and docent, Springfield Museums
At the end of the 19th century, Paul Gauguin left France for the South Pacific in pursuit of his passion: to live and paint among “savages” in a primitive paradise, free from Western governmental and religious strictures. Who was this enigmatic artist? What did he find there? The speaker will share her search for the artist as well as her own experience visiting these magical islands.
