Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?

From the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston:

Dig the blue Tiki!

Art don't pay (to artists)


Aah, those crazy artists...

I didn't know that, very interesting. The two paintings look good together. That supposed Maori piece looks more like a monkey, or the eyes and nose could be PNG style. Paul sure tried every style in his depictions of Polynesian carvings, all to avoid being too literal.

I also visited the reproduction house and cemetary where he is buried at, in Hiva Oa, next to the famous Belgium singer Jacques Brel.
I did a course of his art here, and of course, lots of his paintings are at the Quai d'Orsay museum in Paris.
I recommand the book "Je suis dans les mers du sud" of Jean-Luc Coatalem, who did a quest based on Gauguin, following where he went, lived, explaining his life.
And Victor Segalen's tribute book on Gauguin is an awesome source of information too.

I read on the EL PAIS newspaper that when he died (P. Gaugin), a cannibal friend bited him in the leg to have some of his spirit to live on. Sure did. What a good friend...

Found in a Sotheby's Auction catalog:



Gauguin's palm hut in Punaauia, a "suburb" of Papeete on Tahiti
For comparison:



1st Don the Beachcomber's in Waikiki



Frances Langford's Outrigger in Florida

If these places were Pre-Tiki, Gauguin's hut was ....Proto-Tiki!
