The French artist Paul Gauguin continues to be a larger-than-life figure whose mystique exerts its spell on popular, critical, and scholarly minds. Consequently, the available literature on the artist is copious and marked by diversity of opinion on every aspect of his life and work. From the first book-length biography of Gauguin written by Louis Brouillon in 1906, interest in Gauguin has continued unabated and, since 1959, critical interest in the artist's drawings, prints, sculptures, and art works in other media has dramatically increased. Russell T. Clement has compiled the first comprehensive research guide and annotated bibliography on Gauguin. This volume encompasses primary materials by Gauguin including those published during the artist's lifetime and those published posthumously; contemporary accounts and criticism of Gauguin's life and work published through 1906; descriptions of the artist's oeuvre; a lengthy secondary bibliography; and a section that catalogs exhibitions of Gauguin's work between 1884 and 1989. While concentrating on printed materials, this guide also includes selected manuscripts--in all, more than 1500 books and articles are cited. For entries where titles give incomplete or unclear information about works and their content, the author provides brief annotations. Following a biographical sketch and chronology, the primary bibliography lists articles, essays, letters, manuscripts, and sketch books of Gauguin and then accounts and critiques of Gauguin's life and work published through 1906. The main part of the bibliography and research guide, the secondary bibliography, lists monographs, catalogues, dissertations, theses, periodical literature, films, sound recordings and musical scores, and selected newspaper articles. Substantial book reviews and exhibition reviews are also included. Arranged by topic, the secondary bibliography also includes citations on Gauguin's relationships with contemporary artists in France, his work in Panama and Martinique, his work and life in Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands, and his oeuvre in general. Not just a list of sources but a complete research guide, this volume deserves a place in every research library collection.
