Russian Hand Painted Gauguin's Woman With a Flower on Appatite Gold Chain

$368.00

Product Description

Tahitian Woman with a Flower is an 1891 painting by Paul Gauguin, now in the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen. This hand painted Russian copy with deep sunflower yellow and a blue dress captures the original perfectly.  It is strung on a rolled gold wire with 24K gold foil tipped neon appatite stations.  Very unusual and dramatic.

In his book Noa Noa Gauguin describes his experience of Tahiti and its inhabitants on his arrival in 1891. He describes the woman in the portrait thus: “She was not pretty – at least not by European standards – but beautiful.” Disillusioned with Europe and the Western art scene Gauguin took his leave and went in search of a new beginning in the Pacific Islands. The era’s passion for “the primitive” took hold of him, possibly deeper than with any other artist. The girl’s choice of clothing and the painter’s choice of composition connect her to the European portrait tradition from the Renaissance – but her native features resist any kind of Europeanising.
