Explain that

The huge Gauguin exhibition at the Tate Modern is a riot of beautiful colour. It is possible to get right up to many of the paintings and so examine closely the way Gauguin layered and blended colours.

Yet oddly it was Ai Weiwei's installation down in the Turbine Hall, a huge expanse of grey ceramic sunflower seeds, which gave me the most pleasure.

  1. I agree, the seeds were incredible. I am not much of a Gauguin fan but it was lovely to see some of the painting of his children. I love retrospectives as there is always something one can discover about artists.
