Mark your calendars: The Cleveland Museum of Art presents Paul Gauguin: Paris, 1889
(Oct. 4–Jan. 18), an exhibition examining how the artist developed his signature style that year. These 75 works re-create a turning point in Gauguin’s career: the independent exhibition he organized with his contemporaries on the grounds of the 1889 Exhibition Universelle—what’s now recognized as the first Symbolist exhibition in Paris.
