Paul Gauguin fled what he called "filthy Europe" in 1891 to what he hoped would be an unspoiled paradise, Tahiti. While he created a significant body of paintings, drawings and carvings during the first two years he spent there, he kept notes from which he later wrote Noa Noa - a journal recording his thoughts and impressions of that time. Today the manuscript provides unparalleled insight into Gauguin's thoughts as he strove to achieve spiritual peace, and into the wellsprings of a singular artistic style which changed the course of modern art. This edition includes a number of full colour reproductions from Gauguin's original diary as well as an overview of his life and artwork.
Translated by Robert Buratti with an introduction,
and an extended chapter on the life and art of Gauguin.
