Paul Gauguin Framed Tahitian Mountains N.Y. Graphic Society Lithograph. Tahiti Framed Art


LISTED ON FRIDAY, MAY 26, 2017


I am happy to offer this 1960's vintage New York Graphic Society print titled. "Tahitian Mountains." This is a large framed which has been lithograph dry mounted (pressed on heavy duty chip board); and there is no glass.

This French post-Impressionist artist, Paul Gauguin, was an important figure in the Symbolist art movement of the early 1900's. His use of bold colors, exaggerated body proportions and stark contrasts in his paintings set him apart from his contemporaries. Helping to pave the way for the Primitivism art movement. Gauguin often sought exotic environments, and spent time living and painting in Tahiti.

Before long, Gauguin returned to French Polynesia. He continued to paint during this time, creating one of his later masterpieces—the canvas painting "Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?" Gauguin's depiction of the human life cycle.

In 1901, Gauguin moved to the more remote Marquesas Islands. By this time, his health had been declining; he had experienced several heart attacks, and continued to suffer from his advancing case of syphilis. On May 3, 1903, Gauguin died at his isolated island home, alone. He was nearly out of money at the time—it wasn't until after his death that Gauguin's art began receiving great acclaim, eventually influencing the likes of Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.
