GAUGUIN IN TAHITI: PARADISE LOST traces the legendary life story of Paul Gauguin who left France for Tahiti, feverishly in search of deep immersions into lush nature, for feelings, visions and colors, ever purer and brighter.  Audiences join this journey from Tahiti to 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. 

"Great Art on Screen" series of four visually stunning event documentaries featuring the most extraordinary art masters of their time are now available for your viewing pleasure on the big screen.

The event films will take you on a journey all over the world with the most expert scholars viewing the immense breadth of Vincent Van Gogh's preparatory wheat fields drawings, to the dramatic portraits of the master of light and shadow, Caravaggio, whose internal struggles are expressed in his emotional masterpieces. Turn of the century Vienna provides the backdrop for works of extraordinary visual power by two friends, a mentor Gustav Klimt and his protégé Egon Schiele, and finally, an exclusive tour of Claude Monet's timeless and stunning masterpieces of water lilies.   Tickets for all events:  $ 16.00 (plus NC Sales Tax)
