Two Tahitian Women

by Ramona Lucarelli

Paul Gauguin dreamed of an unspoiled paradise. The French artist was always looking for his place in the world.

He arrives on the island of Tahiti in 1891: to fascinate him the colors, the perfumes and the beauty of those women so different from the French girls. In his imaginary Tahiti represented “that place of ecstasy, calm and art” where he wished to end his existence.

The Two Tahitian Women (1891) are portrayed by the sea, in perfect harmony, intent on simple daily activities. Those two women were for Gauguin the way to represent his desire for freedom in the journey of life.
