Shakespeare / Francesco Hayez | Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds..



Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove: O no! it is an
ever-fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
Non sia mai ch'io ponga impedimenti all'unione di anime fedeli;
Amore non è Amore se muta quando scopre un mutamento
o tende a svanire quando l'altro s'allontana. Oh no! Amore
è un faro sempre fisso che sovrasta la tempesta e non vacilla mai;

Paul Gauguin | Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? 1897




In 1891, Paul Gauguin* left France for Tahiti, seeking in the South Seas a society that was simpler and more elemental than that of his homeland.
In Tahiti, he created paintings that express a highly personal mythology. He considered this work -created in 1897, at a time of great personal crisis- to be his masterpiece and the summation of his ideas.
Gauguin’s letters suggest that the fresco-like painting should be read from right to left, beginning with the sleeping infant.

He describes the various figures as pondering the questions of human existence given in the title; the blue idol represents "the Beyond". The old woman at the far left, "close to death", accepts her fate with resignation. | © Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
