Enjoying read interesting look into Paul Gaugin s experience of Tahitian culture He discusses his personal relationships and how he got along with the natives as both were alien to each other at first He was fascinated by the Tahitians and their relationship with the natural world which was much closer and harmonious than in the EuropeanFrench view he came from He relays their creation story which comes from the night s stars and he learned through his wife He found this world so much beautiful than where he came from and it so much beautiful than where he came from and it much of his art that he is famous for I looked at his art of European scenes and they were not captivating like his Oceana subjects Gauguin s account of his two years in Tahiti are interesting Much of the later half of the text is about Maori spirituality and their pantheon Yet the first part recounts his experience of arriving on the island at the time of the death of King Pomare There are descriptions about the effects of colonialism pon Maori culture and the beauty of the earlier age Gauguin describes components of his time as he tries to become less A Perfect Evil (Maggie ODell, urbane by moving out of the city center of Papeete into the rural countryside of Tahiti He takesp residency in Mata ea In the countryside he learns of some of #the Tahitian myths and beliefs of the area One that stands out is about the phosphorescent dust #Tahitian myths and beliefs of the area One that stands out is about the phosphorescent dust mushrooms The locals believed that the lights were spirits of the dead Gauguin also describes how he came to marry Tehura I remember hearing about this in my art history class but it is different to read Gauguin s firsthand account His portrayal is almost like he fell into the arrangement while traveling through Faone p59 and that her age of 13 was normal for the time and culture of Tahiti p61 Tehura was given to Gauguin by her adoptive mother with an agreed pon 8 day trial run After which Tehura returned home on her own to check in with her family and then decided if she wanted to be permanently Gauguin s companion The ordeal seems very matter of fact and not as salacious as I remember it was described in class Gauguin describes a happy life with Tehura There was one point where he wrote about her laying on a bed afraid of spirits and it sounds just like his painting Spirit of the Dead Watchingp73 see below ote Throughout the book are wonderful woodcuts Some resemble paintings of his that I remember On many of these he carved the initials TSO but I am not sure what they reference I need to research some about this time in his life and what happened after he left Tahitiuickly I struck a match and sawTehura immobile naked lying face downward flat on the bed with the eyes inordinately large with fear She looked at me and seemed not to recognize me As for myself I stood for some moments strangely The Executives Vengeful Seduction (Australian Millionaires, uncertain A contagion emanated from the terror of Tehura I had the illusion that a phosphorescent light was streaming from her staring eyes Never had I seen her so beautiful so tremulously beautiful p73 Paul Gauguin s journal of his time in Tahiti living with a native girl in an attempt to betternderstand the native Tahitian culture and make himself a free and natural artist by getting himself outside of the stifling Euorpean society he comes from The journal provides a glimpse of Tahiti in the late 19th century and a glimpse into some of Gauguin s artisitc motivations and inspirations but it also allows the reader to examine some interesting contradictions in Gauguin he wants to become part of the Tahitian community he adopts as his home and has a much better nderstanding and admiration of their customs than some other Europeans but still is encumbered by his European background and sees things through a European filter even when attempting to leave European ideas behind He finds love and happiness with the young native girl the difference in their ages and the fact that he

left his in Europe is probably a barrier to complete sympathy with Gauguin. Paul Gauguin fled what he called filthy Europe in 1891 to what he hoped would be an nspoiled paradise Tahiti He painted 66 magnificent can vases during the first two years he spent there and kept notes from which he later wrote Noa Noa a journal recording his thoughts and impressions of that time Noa Noa the most widely known of Gauguin's writings is reproduced here from a rare early edition 1919 in a lucid translation capturing the artist's npretentious style Page after page reveal.
