From Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands – in the panoramas Gauguin saw and portrayed – to the American museums of frenetic and hyper-modern metropolises where his greatest masterpieces are now preserved: New York – Metropolitan Museum of Art, Chicago – Art Institute, Washington – National Gallery of Art, Boston – Museum of Fine Arts. Marked by rebellion and other worlds’ craving, he died of syphilis – abandoned by everyone in the remote village of Hiva Oa. A look at the legendary life story of Paul Gauguin who left France for Tahiti, feverishly in search of deep immersions into lush nature, for feelings, visions and colors, ever purer and brighter.

    "Gauguin in Tahiti: Paradise Lost is a sumptuous exploration of the life of a painter strongly associated with exotic images of a far-away, idealised land. The documentary is enhanced with superb cinematography of Pacific locations, as well as taking in Paris, Bretagne, Edinburgh and the art museums of the United States, where most of his masterpieces are preserved."
