The Early Gauguin with Two Hidden Treasures


Take a First Look at this early landscape by Paul Gauguin and discover the two hidden treasures on the back of the painting. Appearing for the first time at auction, it is the most important work by Gauguin to appear on the French market in two decades. This double work from 1881 reveals a striking modernity and points to Gauguin’s innovations to come. It also reveals rare evidence of the close relationship between Gauguin and Camille Pissarro. ‘Le Jardin de Pissarro, Quai du Pothuis à Pontoise’ is a highlight of our upcoming Impressionist and Modern Art sale (Paris | 29 March).
