Gauguin said in one of his many wonderful letters:
Painting is the most most beautiful of all all the arts. In a single glance our souls can be flooded with the most profound reflections. To judge a painting you need… special feelings which are not in everyone’s nature. In a word you must be born an artist. And though many are called, few are chosen.
My colleagues in Tate Media have made this film especially for the Gauguin exhibition, which includes locations known to Gauguin and extracts from letters. Tell us what you think of this film - especially if you have seen the exhibition too.
