Vision of the Sermon: The Story Behind the Painting

Belinda Thomson

Gauguin’s Vision of the Sermon: Jacob Wrestling with the Angel is a truly iconic image. Here, Belinda Thomson examines in detail the background to the painting, and brings together works by Gauguin, his mentors such as Edgar Degas, and younger contemporaries including Emile Bernard and Maurice Denis. This is a fascinating introduction to an iconic image and continues the National Galleries of Scotland’s superb series of books focusing on ‘the story behind the painting’.
