Each of these handsomely illustrated magazine-format books focuses on one great artist, explains how his work spoke to his era, and how it fits into the larger tradition of Western painting and sculpture.

Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) lived an unusual life, even by the standards of an artist. He was a sailor, then a Parisian stockbroker, before becoming an artist and doing much of his best work in Tahiti. Here is a vividly illustrated survey of his life and work.
