In 1891, Paul Gauguin left France for Tahiti, searching for new feelings, visions, and colors through deep immersion in nature. The journey would forge his destiny as one of the greatest modern painters who ever lived. In this sumptuous documentary, audiences will experience the Polynesian landscapes that inspired Gauguin, and visit American museums (including New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, National Gallery of Art in DC, and Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts) where Gauguin’s greatest masterpieces are now preserved.
