Paul Gauguin - Large Format Fine Art Prints and Reproductions

Jean-Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin was born in Paris in 1848. In 1886, Gauguin made his first trip to Pont-Aven in Brittany. He moved to Tahiti in 1895, then to the Marquesas Islands. He died May 8, 1903. On the sidelines of the Impressionists, Gauguin was probably with Paul Cézanne and Vincent Van Gogh, the painter of the late nineteenth century who had the most influence on the movements of the twentieth century painting.

Arearea (The Red Dog)

€37.00
1892, Musée d'Orsay, Paris, France. Arearea is part of a set of Tahitian paintings shown in Paris in November 1893. Gauguin wants to convince of the merits of his exotic quest. However, the exhibition does not cause the enthusiasm expected by the artist. Its  Tahitian titles annoy many of his friends and the red dog unleashed a lot of sarcasm. Yet Gauguin...

Bowl of Fruit and Tankard before a Window

€37.00
This still life is primarily an act of homage to a painting which Gauguin had acquired around 10 years earlier, Cézanne's 'Still Life With Compotier, Glass And Apples' (Museum of Modern Art, New York). It repeats many of the elements of this painting, such as the fruit, pottery, rumpled tablecloth and the knife at lower right. On a wider level it is also...

"Circle Dance of the Breton Girls" is one of Gauguin's most successful paintings from his second trip to Brittany. In the composition, three girls with clasped hands dance while hay is being made in a brilliant yellow-green field.

Entrance to the Village of Osny

€37.00
Beginning in the mid-1870s, when he was still a “Sunday painter,” Gauguin spent much time with the Impressionists, exhibited with them, and collected their pictures. The lively color, small brushstrokes, and unassuming subject of this village of Osny view reflect Impressionist influence, particularly that of Camille Pissarro.

Fatata te Miti (By the Sea)

€37.00
The unity of man and the elements is manifested above all by the attitude of the two women. The gestures of abandonment and adoration describe in some way a cultural and religious procedure of union, a rite of fusion with nature. Gauguin endeavored to do as much as the personages of his painting by pictorial means. 1892, National Gallery of Art,...

Flageolet player on the cliff

€37.00
In 1889 Gauguin worked in the village of Le Pouldu. There he created this dizzying panorama, recording the site's craggy cliffs and the waves breaking on the beach. At right are a girl with her scythe and a boy playing a flageolet, or flute - symbols of the artist's attachment to the harmonies of Breton life.

Flowers and a Bowl of Fruit on a Table

€37.00
Gauguin painted this still life in Pont Aven, in northwestern France, where he spent several months in 1894 recovering from injuries sustained in a fight. Its tasseled mantelpiece trim and bright citrus punctuate the otherwise pale palette, characteristic of the artist’s output from 1893 to 1895, when he returned to France from lush and verdant Tahiti....

Harvest: Le Pouldu

€37.00
In 1890 Gauguin was staying at Marie Henry's boarding house in Le Pouldu, Brittany. The headland in this painting is at the western end of the beach, about a mile from the village itself. Gauguin painted other versions of this landscape, all of which are characterised by the strongly defined forms and flat areas of colour of his Synthetist style.

Houses at Vaugirard

€37.00
In 1877 Gauguin had moved to Vaugirard, then a suburb of Paris, which has since been incorporated into the city. This picture is thought to have been painted there, although it is also possible that it was done at Pontoise, where Gauguin worked together with Pissarro during his summer holidays. In any event, a clear debt to Pissarro is evident in the...

Jacob Wrestling with the Angel

€37.00
Separated by a huge tree whose diagonal cuts the scene in two, in the style of Japanese woodcuts, two groups of characters show two opposing scenes. Women dressed in Breton folk style, consider the words they just heard during the sermon. In the background, the angel fights against the biblical figure of Jacob. With this painting, Gauguin became the...

La Belle Angèle

€37.00
For 450 francs, Edgar Degas acquired "La Belle Angèle" (or Portrait of Madame Satre). This painting brings together all the characteristics of Gauguin's painting of the 1889s: the rustic face of the girl in a Breton dress, the primitive cult object placed beside her as an accessory. These two patterns are mingled with a background filled with decorative...

Landscape near Arles

€37.00
This canvas was the first one Gauguin painted during the two months he spent in Provence with Vincent van Gogh in 1888, just after his productive summer in Pont-Aven. Gauguin had rebelled against Impressionism's reliance on the visible world, and he altered nature's shapes and colors to suggest his own more subjective reaction to the landscape. In this...

Landscape near Pont-Aven

€37.00
This landscape looks from the woods known as the Bois d'Amour on the outskirts of Pont-Aven towards the farm on the other side of the Aven River. This painting shows traces of Impressionist brushwork in Gauguin's treatment of the river and the hill, but his interest in the decorative can be seen in the green meadow and the composition of the group of  trees.

Landscape of Brittany

€37.00
This work from the first half of his stay in Brittany represents a transitional stage from the Impressionist style to his own more planar forms. While the palette is subdued and the touch resembles that of the Impressionists, each form of the separate objects is expressed in large color blocks edged by outlines, clearly foreshadowing the style that would...

Landscape of Brittany with Cows

€37.00
Stylistically "Landscape of Brittany with Cows" (The Willows) is a transitional painting, where the desire for decorative simplification of the ensemble is still combined with the impressionistic observation of detail. Two women and a girl in regional outfits graze cows in the hilly landscape. The subject, however, is dominated by a magnificent row of old...

Landscape with a Pig and a Horse

€37.00
In 1901, Gauguin went to Hiva Oa, the largest and most fertile of the Marquesas Islands. As in his other Tahitian works, the nature one meets in this painting is archaic and emphasises the original connection between man, animal and nature. The human habitation visible in the left-hand corner blends in perfectly with the decorative landscape.

Old Women of Arles

€37.00
As Gauguin’s title suggests, these women appear to be bundled up in their traditional dark shawls, which they draw up to their mouths against the cold of the mistral, the strong northwesterly winds that blow through southern France mainly in winter. The atmosphere is indeed strangely funereal, and the facial expressions of the Arlésiennes leading the...

Pastorales Tahitiennes

€37.00
This work was painted during Gauguin's first stay in Tahiti and it captures the idyll of the natural primitive life which the painter sought when he set off for Polynesia. He combined this romantic dream with his vivid impressions of the exotic landscape and wildlife, the unusual appearance of the islanders and their natural grace, their mysterious...

Sacred Spring: Sweet Dreams

€37.00
Gauguin returned from his first stay in Tahiti (1891-1893) to spend nearly two years in Paris, where he painted this work. The Tahitian girls symbolise different stages in life. The young islander with the halo above her head, deep in sleep, is the embodiment of virgin purity, while the second girl with the fruit in her hand, ready to take a bite, is like...

Schuffenecker's Studio

€37.00
In 1889 Gauguin moved in with his old friend Schuffenecker, and he painted him in the middle of his family. The wife and the children are the main characters and they are placed in the foreground. The disproportion between the impressive presentation of the woman and that of the man is unusual. Gauguin has cynically reflected the relationship between...

Self-Portrait

€37.00
Gauguin exemplified the restless artistic spirit. In this image, painted during a brief return to Paris from Tahiti in 1893, he plays the role of "outsider," wearing the clothes and long hair of a Breton peasant rather than the suit of a Parisian. In the background, a reproduction of a sketch by the painter Eugene Delacroix representing Adam and Eve...

Self-portrait with a hat

€37.00
This self-portrait seems to be a renewed affirmation of his rebellious spirit. Behind him – as a mirror image – Gauguin places the famous Manau Tupapau (The Spirit of the Dead Keeps Watch, Buffalo, Allbright Knox Art Gallery), in his opinion the most important and significant work from his stay in the Pacific. He portrays himself in the "Tahitianised"...
