GAUGUIN / GAUGUIN – VOYAGE DE TAHITI (N/C 15+)

 

In 1891 Gauguin has exiled himself to Tahiti. He wants to rediscover his painting, as a free, wild man, far from the moral, political, and aesthetic codes of civilised Europe. He goes ever deeper into the jungle, coping with solitude, poverty, and sickness. He meets Tehura, who becomes his wife, and the subject of his greatest paintings. This second feature from Édouard Deluc, the director of Return to Mendoza. Deluc was inspired by Noa Noa, a book of journeys by Gauguin as well as The Moon and Sixpence by Somerset Maugham based on the artist’s life.
