Famous French Post-Impressionist artist Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) revolutionised portraiture through painting, sculpture, printmaking and ceramics, but is it wrong to admire his work, given the controversial life he led in Tahiti?

The one-day workshop includes a free tour of the Gauguin Portraits exhibition at the National Gallery and the chance to work with an art historian and contemporary artist to explore identity and symbolism through portraiture with the context of Gauguin’s colonial and patriarchal privilege.
