DescriptionTrailerAbout National Gallery

CineLife Entertainment® and More2Screen present a brand-new 60-minute documentary about the life and work of Paul Gauguin narrated by actor Dominic West (The Wire, The Affair, Colette). This will be followed by a 30-minute private view of the National Gallery exhibition The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Gauguin Portraits, while it is currently on display in London. Filmed in Tahiti, France, the Marquesas Islands and the UK, the documentary will explore Gauguin’s extraordinary – and often problematic – artistic achievement, with commentary from his descendants, artists and world experts. The film examines Gauguin’s legacy not only through the lens of art history, but also those of gender and post-colonial politics, reassessing the artist’s treatment of young indigenous women and his role in 19th century French colonialism.

The private view of this first-ever exhibition of Gauguin’s portraits was filmed exclusively for cinemas in high definition with stunning close-ups. Hosted by art historian and broadcaster Kate Bryan who will welcome the cinema audience, the engaging and insightful guided tour is led by the exhibition co-curator Christopher Riopelle, with illuminating commentary from expert contributors including painter and sculptor Maggi Hambling, and artist and writer Billy Childish.

The National Gallery

The National Gallery is one of the greatest art galleries in the world. Founded by Parliament in 1824, the Gallery houses the nation’s collection of paintings in the Western European tradition from the late 13th to the early 20th century. The collection includes works by Bellini, Cézanne, Degas, Leonardo da Vinci, Monet, Raphael, Rembrandt, Renoir, Rubens, Titian, Turner, Van Dyck, Van Gogh and Velázquez. The Gallery’s key objectives are to enhance the collection, care for the collection and provide the best possible access to visitors.
