From September 28th 2012 to January 20th 2013, The Zürich Kunsthaus, or Museum for Modern art, will display an exhibition with almost the entirety of Gauguin’s work, with around 60 plates of supreme quality. While Gauguin’s paintings could express the peaceful and bucolic landscapes and ambiances of tropical countries, the woodcuts were more focusing on the unfathomable, nocturnal and demonic aspect of the tropical paradise.
