The Scottish painter and printmaker Charles H. Mackie was one of the first Brits to meet Paul Gauguin. In 1892, having traveled to France on his honeymoon, Mackie formed a friendship with the painter Paul Sérusier, who introduced him to Gauguin. The encounter spurred a change in Mackie’s printing technique: upon his return home he replaced cut linoleum with Japanese oak blocks. He studied French Symbolism, Japanese art, the Celtic Revival movement, and these influenced his work in a number of mediums. This is Mackie’s first retrospective in over a century. —E.C.
