Description

Noa Noa

In 1894, Paul Gauguin left what he considered to be a culturally bereft Europe to live an unfettered life in a tropical paradiseTahiti. It was there that he produced some of his most beautiful and best-known paintings, as well as another masterpiece: this enchanting journal. Complete with sensuous woodblock prints and sketches, this exquisitely designed editionfirst published by Chronicle in 1994 and now reissued with a beautiful new jacketis still the only translation to contain all of Gauguin's richly colored illustrations of the Tahiti diary. Including Tahitian myths and legends, affectionate tales of Gauguin's encounters with the captivating Tahitian people, and fascinating glimpses of the inspiration behind his most famous paintings, Noa Noa assumes its rightful place among the masterworks of an extraordinary artist.
