In 1894, Paul Gauguin left Europe to spend two years in Tahiti, where he produced some of his most beautiful and best-known paintings. But he also created another masterpiece that has languished in obscurity for nearly 100 years: a detailed.

About the Book Noa Noa-the most widely known of Gauguin's writings-is reproduced.

Paul Gauguin fled what he called "filthy Europe" in 1891 to what he hoped would be an unspoiled paradise, Tahiti.

Poetic and probably embellished to some extent but overall an interesting read.

Page after page reveals Gauguin's keen observations of Tahiti and its people, and his passionate struggle to achieve the inner harmony he expressed so profoundly on canvas. Poetic and probably embellished to some extent but overall an interesting read.

The journal is captivating reading, offering a compelling fragment of the soul of a genius. Page after page reveals Gauguin's keen observations of Tahiti and its people, and his passionate struggle to achieve the inner harmony he expressed so profoundly on canvas. Gauguin's prose is as seductive as his paintings, filled with descriptions of warm seas, hidden lagoons, lush green forests, and beautiful Maori women.

Noa Noa : the Tahitian journal. Translated from the French. Originally published: New York : . G27A2 1985 75. 84-21058. Manufactured in the United States by Courier Corporation.

Noa Noa: The Tahitian Journal (Dover Fine Art, History of Art). Text: English, French (translation). In his own post-Rousseau, premulticultural time, however, his Tahitian escapade was viewed less sanguinely. On his return to France, unable to find a publisher, Gauguin himself published his diary, Noa Noa, minus the accompanying woodblock illustrations. Now the journal and art are reunited in this verbal and visual ode to Tahiti.

NOA NOA. "Dites, qu’avez-vous vu?" CHARLES BAUDELAIRE. The cigarette was entirely alight. Do you know, Gauguin," said the princess in rising, "I do not like your La Fontaine. What? Our good La Fontaine?"

NOA NOA. I owed this distinction to the mission with which the French government-I do not know why-had entrusted me. It was an artistic mission, it is true. What? Our good La Fontaine?"

The Noa Noa woodcuts illustrate everything that drew Gauguin to printmaking.

The Noa Noa woodcuts illustrate everything that drew Gauguin to printmaking. Although the woodcut had seen a modest revival in the nineteenth century, no example matched the audacity of Gauguin's approach to the medium, which allowed him to work on a natural, "primitive" matrix, creating works that combined the sculptural gouging of his carved wood low reliefs with the evocative color of his paintings. It also provided seemingly endless opportunity for experimentation. Gauguin printed Noa Noa blocks with various inkings and color combinations, on different papers, and sometimes.
