    About the Artwork

    After being unable to conform to the life of a bourgeois gentlemen Paul Gauguin left his put upon wife, five children and job at the bank to pursue his dream of becoming an artist, travelling to Tahiti to paint the island and its community. Imagining an exotic paradise, the artist's hopes were dashed upon arrival to find a colonised, christianised community. In spite of this Gauguin's depictions of the place show a tropical paradise, free from the burdens of respectability and sexual restraint, with the focus of his work overwhelmingly the native women. In keeping with this ideal the works are painted in bold vibrant colours, signalling a clear break from impressionism. With infrequent trips made back to Paris Gauguin became an increasingly tragic figure, his work failed to make any impact and he became attached to the myth he'd created, unwilling to move back to France in fear of losing face. Despite being unable to sell his works during his lifetime, Gauguin's Tahitian paintings sell for tens of millions, considered amongst the most important of post-impressionist works.
