Paul Gauguin's flight from French society and his search for lost innocence in the South Seas has become a modern myth. A successful stockbroker and respectable married man, he abandoned everything to fulfil himself as an artist. In Tahiti he found the 'peace' that he was looking for. Incapable of compromise, obsessed with physical beauty, intensely sensitive to light and colour, Gauguin changed the course of art and the way we see the world.

Gauguin: The Quest for Paradise, a pocket-sized biography, includes over 200 illustrations with many colour reproductions of Gauguin's works, contemporary documents, photographs and accounts of his life.
