From February to June 28 the Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland presents a great exhibition dedicated to Paul Gauguin. As one of the great European cultural highlights in the year 2015, the exhibition brings together around fifty masterpieces by Gauguin from leading international museums and private collections. Gauguin was included in the Saints Collects of the Gnostic Mass composed by Aleister Crowley, added to the collect with the publication of Magick In Theory And Practice.
The .inexhibit.com site notes: “The exhibition features Gauguin’s multifaceted self-portraits as well as the visionary, spiritual paintings from his time in Brittany, but it mainly focuses on the world-famous paintings he created in Tahiti. In them, the artist celebrates his ideal of an unspoilt exotic world, harmoniously combining nature and culture, mysticism and eroticism, dream and reality.
“In addition to paintings, the exhibition includes a selection of Gauguin’s enigmatic sculptures that evoke the art of the South Seas that had by then already largely vanished.”
May 8 is the Lesser Feast of Gauguin and Sister Stephanie provided a wonderful recipe to celebrate with – which would STILL be lovely to make: http://zeroequalstwo.net/the-feast-of-st-paul-gaugin/
