Casco Life

Paul Gauguin in Casco Viejo, Panama

Panama, Casco Viejo

Paul Gauguin lived in Panama in 1887, during the construction of the French Canal.   Living in “Panama”, of course, meant to live in “Casco Viejo”, which was the only thing going at the time. Eventually he decided for the island of Taboga. Eventually, he moved out altogether, and head to Tahiti where he would paint his famous and colorful paintings.

This week, the Canal Museum in Casco Viejo opened an exhibition on Paul Gauguin that will be shown until March.  Letters, paintings, drafts, and a peek on the life of the radical genius.
