        Gauguin’s Monotypes

        Gauguin is known for his paintings, but also was a skilled maker of the traced monotype. The pencil drawing shows the marks and gestures that Gauguin used to produce the monotype which evokes the erotic dreamscapes that characterize so much of his later work.

        Does the head look familiar? Maybe you’ve seen this horned figure before?

        See more of Gauguin’s monotypes for free from the @philamuseum here, made available through the Getty Research Portal.

        This week’s pick from the Getty Research Portal, a one-stop shop for public domain art history books.
