Gauguin and Impressionism by Richard R Brettell( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was introduced into the Impressionist circle by Camille Pissarro and contributed major works to five of the eight Impressionist exhibitions between 1879 and 1886. During these years he transformed himself from a banker-stockbroker into a professional artist and from a family man into a solitary searcher for artistic, moral, and spiritual truths. Yet this vital period of Gauguin's life has usually been dismissed as a mere prelude to his brilliant career as an anti-Impressionist. This illustrated book reconsiders Gauguin's apprenticeship as an Impressionist and reassesses his contributions to the movement through the extraordinarily subtle and beautiful paintings, sculpture, and ceramic works he created during the years before 1887." "Richard R. Brettell and Anne-Birgitte Fonsmark argue that Gauguin's Impressionist paintings compare in quality to those of Sisley, Morisot, or Cassatt and that as a sculptor he was second only to Degas. His sculptures and ceramics were even more searching and radical than his early paintings and are crucial to the understanding of his development. Gauguin grappled with the thorniest issues debated by the French avant-garde, and no member of the Impressionist group created works as enigmatic or as wideranging, both artistically and emotionally."--Jacket

Gauguin Tahiti by George T. M Shackelford( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life of Paul Gauguin is one of the richest and most mythic in the history of Western art. A banker and "Sunday painter," he left behind family and homeland and sailed to the South Seas, seeking a life "in ecstasy, in peace, and for art." Gauguin Tahiti, the first major retrospective of the artist's work in fifteen years, offers an in-depth study of the fabled Polynesian years that have so defined our image of the painter. Alongside essays by leading American and French critics on every aspect of Gauguins art, from the legendary canvases to his sculptures, ceramics, and innovative graphic works, are discussions of the Polynesian society, culture, and religion that helped shape them; an in-depth biographical narrative of the artists life, with the many epiphanies, frustrations, and discoveries that make his time in the South Seas one of the most mythologically potent episodes in the history of Western art; and a chronicle of his changing fortunes in the century since his death. At the center of it all is Gauguins 1897 masterpiece, Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?, the summation and crowning glory of his mature career, presented with unprecedented depth and authority. Over one hundred years later, Gauguin remains one of the most enigmatic and attractive figures of 19th-century art, the very pivot of modernism, and Gauguin Tahiti finally portrays this crucial period of his life in all its color and drama

The lure of the exotic : Gauguin in New York collections by Colta Feller Ives( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The legendary, pioneering French artist who famously left his family and a career in finance to paint and live like a native in the South Seas, Paul Gauguin in fact began sailing to far-off lands during childhood. As a boy he lived for a time with relatives in Peru, and in his teens, in the merchant marine and the military, he visited South America, India, the Mediterranean, the Black Sea, and the North Sea. He believed firmly in his difference, often referring to himself as a "savage," and once he discovered his passion for art he had to create forms that were original and unique. "What does it matter that I set myself apart from other people? For most I shall be an enigina, but for a few I shall be a poet ...," he wrote." "This volume accompanies a major exhibition of Gauguin's work in New York collections held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Surprisingly, the first major show devoted to Gauguin in New York since the Metropolitan Museum presented a retrospective of his work in 1959, it anticipates the centennial of the artist's death in 1903 and signals the nineteenth anniversary of his debut in New York collections. Four authors from the Metropolitan Museum illuminate aspects of the subject in their texts." "All works in the exhibition, as well as rich comparative material, are reproduced, Notes, a bibliography, a checklist of works in the exhibition, and an index are supplied."--Jacket

Technique and meaning in the paintings of Paul Gauguin by Vojtěch Jirat-Wasiutyński( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Technique and Meaning in the Paintings of Paul Gauguin reinterprets Gauguin's art by reconstructing his painting techniques and their meaning for contemporaries. Using Gauguin as a case study, V. Jirat-Wasiutynski and H. Travers Newton Jr. show that technique provides historical evidence of aesthetic and cultural meaning. Gauguin began as a self-taught amateur in 1873 and, from 1879 to 1885, his techniques were closely modeled on Impressionism. Beginning in 1886, however, Gauguin reevaluated traditional procedures and, like a Renaissance fresco painter, used full-scale cartoons to prepare his monumental figure paintings. In the following years, the delicately textured, matte surfaces and areas of opaque high-key color in his oil paintings deliberately evoked older non-oil media such as tempera and fresco. Contemporary critics responded by calling Gauguin's work "primitive" and "decorative.""--Jacket

Gauguin : watercolors, pastels, drawings by Jean Leymarie( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) came late to painting, after two previous careers, first as a seaman, then as a stockbrocker. A romantic, a primitive, a symbolist, a born rebel and flamboyant personality, he stands at the crossroads of modern painting, summing up in his life's work the crucial transition from Impressionism to abstraction. He had no art school training. What we did have was an idea and a dream. His genius is usually considered in terms of his painting. This book offers the rare treat of a selection of watercolors, gouaches, pastels, pen-and-ink and charcoal drawings, monotypes, zincograph and woodcuts, together with pages from "Noa Noa", Gauguin's illustrated account of his stay in Tahiti. In many ways these works are more revealing than his paintings, as they allowed the artist a spontaneity and intimacy that painting, by the very nature of his technique, could not. -- From publisher's description
Paul Gauguin's intimate journals by Paul Gauguin( Book )

15 editions published between 1921 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unappreciated in his own lifetime, Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) is now recognized as one of the giants of French postimpressionism and a pioneer of early modernism. A rebel in both art and life, he rejected his bourgeois upbringing and comfortable stockbroker's job to devote his life to painting. Eventually, dismayed by the "hypocrisy of civilization" and in search of a primitive idyll, he left Paris and took up residence in the South Seas, first in Tahiti and, later, in the Marquesas Islands. He would never return to Europe. In the final months of his life, he wrote this witty, revealing autobiographical memoir with the request that it be published upon his death. It first appeared in the original French in 1918, and was translated into English three years later. As his son Émile wrote in the preface, "These journals are an illuminating self-portrait of a unique personality. They bring sharply into focus for me his goodness, his humor, his insurgent spirit, his clarity of vision, his inordinate hatred of hypocrisy and sham."Wide-ranging and elliptical, these candid reflections reveal Gauguin's thoughts about many subjects, including frank views on his fellow artists back in Paris, his turbulent relationship with Van Gogh and the charms of Polynesian women, while providing glimpses into his often far-from-idyllic life in the islands. This beautiful facsimile reproduces the first American translation of the journals, a rare limited edition privately published in New York in 1921 for a select group of subscribers. With full-page sketches by the artist, these entertaining and enlightening musings give us a unique insight into Gauguin the man and the artist. Translated from French by Van Wyck Brooks (1886-1963)
