Two Tahitian Women

Two Tahitian Women


Paul Gauguin's "Two Tahitian Women" is an iconic example of his work during his time in French Polynesia. Created in 1899, the painting depicts two Tahitian women in traditional attire against a lush tropical backdrop. Gauguin uses bold colors and simplified forms to convey the exoticism and sensuality of Tahitian culture, while also incorporating symbolic elements drawn from his own imagination. The composition is characterized by its flat, decorative style and the strong presence of pattern and ornamentation.

This work reflects Gauguin's fascination with primitivism and his pursuit of an unspoiled paradise, capturing the tension between reality and idealization.
