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!



This 70's Gauguin´s house photography includes signage that makes it look even closer to that Don the Beachcomber´s place.

For a real Gauguin eye-candy feast, check out Gauguin: Life, Art Inspiration (Abrams: 1987).
It's one of my favorites because it not only includes two-dimensional works, but many of his three-dimensional pieces including sculptures and ceramics, and visuals pertaining to many of the things that inspired him.

For anyone here interested I would really recommend seeing the Three Voyages to Paradise show at the Maritime Museum in San Diego, the Gauguin portion was my favorite and there are some great Polynesian carvings, it is amazing to see a show of this caliber in San Diego of all places. They do have a short "Tiki" portion that is supposed to cover the Polynesian Pop era (which is nice they sort of acknowledged) but is disappointing other than that it's great.

This is the show Rum Runner mentions above - looks awesome.
60 Gauguin works alongside 60 "major examples" of Polynesian sculpture.

Check out the Chapters under "Explore the Art"
http://www.seattleartmuseum.org/gauguin/#?tab=explore&page=image_gallery_02.html

I'm thinking a Denver-Seattle trip may be imminent, but your San Diego exhibit looks great, too.

I wonder what Gauguin would think of this Tahitian Landscape skate deck. $63.50

A couple Gauguin images from my last visit to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles:


How many tikis can you find? by Trader Chris, on Flickr
"Arii Matamo" (The Royal End), 1892. From Gauguin's first trip to Tahiti.


"Head with Horns," Paul Gauguin, circa 1896 by Trader Chris, on Flickr
Gauguin's attempt at a Euro-tiki?

Personal politics aside I love the man's work, and I love that he was seeking a deeper truth in art and life. He started applying paint quite sparingly when he was living in poverty and running out of the stuff. He also used colour in such a different, dramatic and yet natural way. His sense of line and form just blow me away.
