overstockArt Road in Tahiti 1891 by Paul Gauguin Framed Hand Painted Oil with Opulent Frame

Paul Gauguin's color palette in this 1891 image is strikingly similar to that of his 1888 work, Fisherman and Bathers on the Avon. It would become his signature style after his journey to Tahiti in 1891, where he sought to escape the trappings of modern European civilization. Having spent some of his childhood in Peru, he had long yearned for the simple and paradisiacal lifestyle of tribal cultures. Even as he eventually fell Ill and died from his journeys in the Soparadisiacal lifestyle of tribal cultures. Even as he eventually fell Ill and died from his journeys in the Southern seas, Gauguin adored the joyful atmosphere the Islands. Works like these laid the foundation for Primitivism and other post-impressionist pursuits of 'naive' artistry.
