Savage Tales: The Writings of Paul Gauguin
In the later years of his life, Paul Gauguin resided in Polynesia, dedicating his time to painting people and landscapes from the region in his experimental post-impressionist style.
Largely unappreciated until after his death, Gauguin is now lauded for his synthetist style that was influential to the French avant-garde. As a french artist living in Polynesia, he occupies a crucial position in histories of European primitivism.
Savage Tales: The Writing of Paul Gauguin is the first book devoted to his broad literary output, which included journalism, travel writing, art criticism, and essays on aesthetics, religion and politics. Gauguin’s often haphazard manuscripts celebrated Polyenisian culture and rejected the style of establishment critics. This book analyses his original manuscripts and helps us understand the complexities of artistic encounters in the French colonial context.
