Sinopsis

Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) no estaba hecho para las finanzas. Tampoco duró mucho en la marina francesa, ni como vendedor de carpas en Copenhague porque no sabía hablar danés. Empezó a pintar en su tiempo libre en 1873, y en 1876 participó en el Salón de París. Tres años después, exponía junto a Pissarro, Degas y Monet.

Vehemente y gran bebedor, Gauguin solía autoadjetivarse como “salvaje”. Su íntima pero agitada amistad con el también temperamental Vincent van Gogh llegó a su clímax con un incidente violento en 1888, cuando Van Gogh se enfrentó supuestamente a Gauguin con una navaja de afeitar y más tarde se cortó la oreja. Poco después, tras completar una de sus obras maestras, La visión tras el sermón (1888), Gauguin se trasladó a Tahití con la intención de escaparse de “todo lo artificial y convencional” del mundo.

La alegría sin límites que Gauguin encontraba en la naturaleza de Tahití, en la gente de la isla y en las imágenes figurativas impregnó una prolífica producción de pinturas y grabados. En obras como Muchacha con una flor (Vahine no te Tiare, 1891) y Dulce ensueño (Nave Nave Moe, 1894) desarrolló un estilo distinto, primitivista, que destilaba sol y color. Fiel a una sensualidad exótica, sus pinceladas se concentraban especialmente en las curvas de las mujeres tahitianas.

  • Impressionism
    Walther, Ingo F.
    It was a dappled and daubed harbor scene that gave Impressionism its name. When Impression, Sunrise by Claude Monet was exhibited in April 1874, critics seized upon the work's title and its loose stylistic rendering of light and motion upon water to deride this new, impressionistic tendency in art.As with many seminal art movements, the critics got their comeuppance. Today, Imp...

    Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was not cut out for finance. Nor did he last particularly long in the French Navy, or as a tarpaulin salesman in Copenhagen who did not speak Danish. He began painting in his spare time in 1873 and in 1876 took part in the Paris Salon. Three years later, he was exhibiting alongside Pissarro, Degas, and Monet.A querulous, hard-drinking individual, Gaugui...

    Walther, Ingo F.
    Fue una escena de un puerto moteada y borrosa la que dio nombre al estilo. Cuando Impression, Sunrise (Impresión, Sol naciente), de Claude Monet, se expuso en abril de 1874, la crítica aprovechó el título de la obra y su representación estilística imprecisa de la luz y el movimiento en el agua para ridiculizar esta nueva tendencia artística impresionista.Como ha sucedido con mu...
