Paul Gauguin

Paul Gauguin - Escape
Gauguin’s inclination towards non-European cultures culminated with his trip to Tahiti. Leaving behind his European inspiration, the artist matured which gave grounds to Escape. Classicising nobleness drove the shape line, figural compositions, and tree branches. Complementary hues were incorporated in large areas, becoming the tools of the artistic structure of the painting co-creating its psychological and mental dimensions. The group of figures in the Prague painting recurs in other artworks from the artist’s declining years - The Call (1902; The Museum of Art, Cleveland) or in the drawing Two Marquesans (The British Museum, London).
