How do you reconcile a revered artist with his reprehensible actions? In Gauguin, Monster, Myth, art historian Flemming Friborg explores the legacy of Paul Gauguin as one of the most significant figures of early modernism against the backdrop of his relationship with adolescent girls and his share in colonialism in French Polynesia. Friborg shows how Gauguin’s method and morals were bound in a carefully maintained, personal brand, making the master and the monster inseparable – and Gauguin’s legacy and status as a genius artist unclear.
