Online Workshop with The Courtauld Institute of Art
Suitable for ages 16-18

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?

This free workshop will be held online, and is an opportunity to work and collaborate with curators and art historians at The Courtauld Gallery, and contemporary artist Nadine Mahoney, to explore identity and symbolism through portraiture within the context of Gauguin’s colonial and patriarchal privilege.

NEW! You will also have special access The Courtauld Institute of Art’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), where you can view a range of learning materials and book a tutorial for advice and feedback on your own research and practical work.
