Ürün Açıklaması

His story is famous: brash Parisian banker-turned-artist leaves family to paint vivid scenes of indigenous people in Tahiti. Yet Paul Gauguin has been overlooked by the art world in recent decades. The Lure of the Exotic: Gauguin in New York Collections, which accompanies a Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition (through October 20, 2002), remedies this omission with lively overviews of his travels and innovative working methods, and more than 200 reproductions of his paintings, drawings, prints, and wood carvings. Gauguin's fascination with "primitive" cultures and blocky, simplified figures began during sojourns to Brittany in the late 1880s. A visit to Martinique whetted his appetite for tropical settings, and in 1891 he set sail for the South Pacific. Numerous excerpts from Gauguin's self-aggrandizing letters and other writings reveal the intense pleasures he found far from home: "I muse on violent harmonies amid the intoxicating fragrances of nature." --Cathy Curtis Even though he abandoned his wife and four children for the life of a self-described "savage" in the South Seas, Gauguin wrote to them constantly. This contradictory and brilliant painter is the subject of a catalog for a recent show at the Metropolitan Museum that celebrates Gauguin collecting in New York State. It is unique because rather than focusing on a theme in the artist's work, it includes a whole range of his paintings from both public and private sources. All the works on display are reproduced in the catalog, which offers 134 color and 88 black-and-white illustrations of Gauguin's paintings, sculptures, drawings, woodcuts, and watercolors. The first chapters, which are interspersed with quotations from his many letters, give a chronological account of the artist's remote venues in the South Seas. Later chapters review the role various New York collectors played in establishing Gauguin's reputation and key shows that catapulted him into public consciousness. The final chapter offers technical analysis of the paintings, providing insight into how a major museum appraises the work. This book demonstrates the contributions New Yorkers have made to recognizing this great French painter. Recommended for special, public, and academic libraries.
