Gauguin: Maker of Myth, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

Most people think of D.C. as a buttoned-up kind of town. But this spring, the National Gallery of Art is stripping things down with a new Paul Gauguin exhibit--the artist's first major U.S. show in 20 years.

Gauguin is the traveler's painter, having hopped from Peru to Paris, Martinique to Tahiti. The 120 works in this exhibit evoke many of those places, with Polynesian nudes, rainbow-hued images of the South Seas, and mythological paradise paintings. Far-flung beaches and scantily clad subjects? It's the Post-Impressionist's answer to spring break.

Gauguin: Maker of Myth will be on view through June 5, 2011.
