Join MoMA’s Starr Figura, curator of the exhibition Gauguin: Metamorphoses, for an exploration of Paul Gauguin’s extraordinary prints and transfer drawings, and their relationship to his better-known paintings and sculptures.

Crafted in discrete bursts of activity from 1889 until his death in 1903, these remarkable works on paper reflect Gauguin’s experiments with a range of media.


Brief Bio

In 2011 she organized the exhibition, German Expressionism: The Graphic Impulse, which marked the culmination of a major grant-funded project that she supervised to digitize, catalogue and conserve the Museum’s collection of more than 3,800 Expressionist works on paper, all of which are now searchable on an extensive subsite on the MoMA website, In 2007, she organized Lucian Freud: The Painter’s Etchings. In addition, she has organized a number of exhibitions highlighting aspects of MoMA’s unparalleled collection of modern and contemporary works on paper, including Paper: Pressed, Stained, Slashed, Folded (2009), Geo/Metric: Prints and Drawings from the Collection (2008), The Compulsive Line: Etching 1900 to Now (2006) and Giorgio Morandi: Etchings (2000).
