The book by Jean-Louis Saquet to aim to propose a staging of the work of Gauguin in Pacific time. The author knows well Tahiti - where he lived for thirty years - and the islands of French Polynesia; it provides a rare and precious information for those who are not familiar with the Pacific world, be it the natural environment (geography, flora and fauna), or society (influence of French colonialism, Polynesian culture and traditions Tahiti and Hiva Oa in the late nineteenth century). Hundreds of illustrations (reproductions, photographs, historical documents) support About the author; the confrontation between the one and the other emphasizes the painter's sensitivity to the local light and the acuteness of look he wore on the daily lives of people alongside whom he spent the last years of his life.
