From Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands – in the panoramas Gauguin saw and portrayed – to the American museums of frenetic and hyper-modern metropolises where his greatest masterpieces are now preserved: New York – Metropolitan Museum of Art, Chicago – Art Institute, Washington – National Gallery of Art, Boston – Museum of Fine Arts. Marked by rebellion and other worlds’ craving, he died of syphilis – abandoned by everyone in the remote village of Hiva Oa.

In 1891 Gauguin leaves Marseille for the Pacific. It’s the beginning of a journey towards the essence of life and art, that will make him one of the greatest modern painters. Gauguin in Tahiti. Paradise Lost will take us to French Polynesia, in Tahiti and Marquesas Islands – to experience the landscapes that inspired him, amongst the locals whom he loved, on the trail of a story that has become myth. In the places where he built houses with bamboo and leaves, discovered light and colours which changed his painting forever, of the sensuality free of inhibitions of the indigenous girls.

The documentary will also bring us to Paris, Bretagne, Edinburgh, and to the most prestigious art museums of the United States, where most of his masterpieces are preserved: The Metropolitan Museum of Art – New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; The National Gallery of Art – Washington; The Museum of Fine Arts – Boston.
