The Work

Charles Filiger, the celebrated painter of the Pont-Aven school, was a close friend of Gauguin. Recently his painful, astonishing and outstanding journey has been rediscovered in the form of his abundantly illustrated and annotated correspondence.

Filiger’s complicated life was one of misery and madness but his artistic genius places him in the canon of famous painters. Thus making his work worth a fortune on the world market.
