This work offers an opportunity to see at first hand a selection of pages from "Noa Noa", the painted manuscript that is Gaugin's personal record of the time he spent in the South Pacific. Kept today in the Louvre, this intimate journal contains the artist's day-to-day writings interspersed with brightly painted watercolours and woodcuts. Exotic landscapes and richly imaginative scenes are illustrated here in detail. A text by Marc Le Bot explores the history of this document, showing how it can provide a deeper understanding of Gaugin's artistic language and meaning.

From the Back Cover:

In 1894, Paul Gauguin came to the conclusion that European culture in general, and French culture in particular, was spiritually and morally bankrupt. So he left. On the eighth of June 1894 he arrived in Tahiti, an island of tropical warmth, impenetrable jungles, and--most importantly for Gauguin--unspoiled, undecadent, un-European, and extremely beautiful people.He luxuriated in this paradise for two years, producing some of this best and best-known paintings. But Gauguin left us another masterpiece that has languished in obscurity until now: his journal and the woodblocks he made to accompany it.
