Gauguin Paul - Sunflowers Fine Art Print
A Museum Quality fine art print of Sunflowers painted by Paul Gauguin. The artist was still living in Tahiti and nearing the end of his life when he did this post impressionism painting in 1901. The picture subject however, goes back a couple decades before the actual painting, dating to his friendship with Vincent Van Gogh and his visit in 1888 when both artists worked together in Arles France. During this time Van Gogh painted a number of stilllifes with sunflowers and Gauguin painted Van Gogh painting one of his Sunflower pictures. This period came to a bitter end for the artists and they never saw each other again. Gauguin took to growing sunflowers in Oceania from seeds specially sent from France. In this painting he combines the sunflowers with a blank native face in the window which is reminiscent with Buddha. In doing this Gauguin combines the exotic land of Oceania with nostalgic reminiscenses of the Europe the artist had left behind. This canvas has worn over the years and it appears that Gauguin put the oils on very sparingly in the beginning, so keep in mind that this reproduction print shows these original flaws also.
