Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Painting Gallery of Poul Gauguin

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 1:39 AM
Gauguin's paintings bear witness to his search for a primitive, spiritual lifestyle. As early as 1886 he had abandoned 'civilized' Paris for the Breton countryside, and his quest continued in the remote South Sea Islands. In 1888, he painted his first mature work, Vision after the Sermon, while living among the peasants of Brittany. Like the Yellows Christ, it expressed his own feelings about religion in a distinctive, non-realist manner, with bold colours and outlines.

During his first visit to Tahiti, Gauguin painted Girl with a Flower, Women on a Beach and The Market. But he was soon disillusioned by colonial society and left the island for two years.

On his second visit, poverty and disease nearly broke his spirit and the great allegory Where Do We Come From? was intended as a final meditation on life. But Gauguin survived his subsequent attempt at suicide. Late paintings such as The White Horse and Breasts and Red Flowers show a new-found lyrical harmony.

Painting Gallery of Poul Gauguin-

The Great Artist Paul Gauguin Painting  "Vision after the Sermon" 1888 28 3/4 x 36 1/4 Nationl Gallery of Scotland, EdinburghIn a Breton churchyard, peasant women experience a vision of Jacob the father of Israel wrestling with an angel. The Old Testament story may have been the subject of a sermon delivered by the priest who appears on the right. Blending symbol with reality, Gauguin frames the blood-red field of spiritual battle with the women's white headdresses, and separates them from the vision with a tree.

The Great Artist Paul Gauguin Painting “The Yellow Christ 1889” 36 3/4 x 28 ¾ Albright Art Gallery, Buffalo
Peasant women kneel to pray at a wayside crucifix in the Breton countryside The humanity of the Christ figure experience is to the women. Yet the colour is totally unreal the yellow body of Christ and the red trees stress the other worldliness of the scene. The child–like drawing with its strong black outline is deliberately reminiscent of medieval stained glass.

The Great Artist Paul Gauguin Painting “Tahitian Girl with a flower 1891” 27 ½ x 18 Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, CopenhagenGauguin painted his magnificent of a Tahitian girl wearing Western-style clothes after his arrival in the South Seas. Despite her grey dress, the girl is linked to coloured backdrop by the flower which she holds. The Tahitian title appears as part of the decorative scheme.

The Great Artist Paul Gauguin Painting “Two Tahitian Women on a Beach 1891” 27 x 35 3/4 Musee d`Orsay, ParisTwo statuesque women laze on a sanity Tahitian beach self-absorbed and silent in a mood of timelessness and languor. The background is made up of bonds of flat colour, which divide up the canvas vertically. This has the effect of pushing the figures forward, emphasizing their monumental solidity.

The Great Artist Paul Gauguin Painting “The Market 1892” 28 ¾ x 36 ¼ Kunstmuseum, Basle
Gauguin mixes Tahitian with Egyptian imagery in the frieze-like painting, and in fact the composition derives from a photograph of an ancient Egyptian wall-painting. A simple rhythm of turned heads and stylized gestures runs across the canvas as a counterpoint to the girls bent knees, which are all turned in the same direction. The point is applied very thinly on the coarse sacking canvas-Gauguin was too poor to be generous with his paint.

The Great Artist Paul Gauguin Painting “Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going To? 1897” 54 ¾ x 14 ½ Museum of Fine Arts, Bostan Painted after one of the worst years in Gauguin's life, this 12-foot canvas was intended to be his parting message to the world .The painting 'reads' from right to left, beginning with the baby and moving across to the old woman contemplating death. The questions of the title written in the yellow panel in French rather than Tahitian remained unanswered and unanswerable.
The Great Artist Paul Gauguin Painting “Mutiny on the Bounty” 55 ½ x 28 ¾ Metropolitan Museum of Art, New Yark The ignominious fate of Captain Bligh cast adrift .from his own ship in April 1789 was powerful evidence of the lure of Tahiti. Fletcher Christian and his co-mutineers returned to the island before founding their own colony, with Tahitian wives, on Pitcairn Island.
