Each work of art is an original which is part of what makes it so special. The disadvantage, however, is that the work cannot be in several places at once. As a way of allowing us to look at paintings outside as well as inside the museum, the Fondation Beyeler creates high-quality fine art prints of selected works. The masterpieces are printed on high-quality papers that are resistant to ageing. Find your favourite work in the Shop and enjoy it within your own four walls!
A great many willful painters can be assigned to Post-Impressionism who forged their own artistic paths. Paul Gauguin (1848–1903), like Vincent van Gogh, is a particularly uncompromising exponent of this current. His quest for an independent artistic stance took the former stockbroker from Paris to Brittany before deciding to travel to Polynesia. Simplified forms, expressive colors, and marked two-dimensionality characterize his seminal paintings, which are currently among the most coveted in the world.
