In Paris 1889, Paul Gauguin executed a suite of 11 zincographs on bright yellow paper, first exhibited at Monsieur Volpini's Café des Arts. These remarkable prints comprise a visual resumé of his career as an artist. Listen to Dr. Heather Lemonedes, Curator of Drawings at the Cleveland Museum of Art, talk about the connections between the iconography in the Volpini Suite and Gauguin's work in other media, his artistic process, his choice of materials—and the mysterious identity of the professional printer who executed the prints.
