Paul Gauguin | Nature Morte Aux Mangos, 1891-93

The present work was probably executed in Tahiti during Gauguin's first trip to the Island in 1891-93, although Georges Wildenstein suggests that it may date to his second visit to the South Seas, circa 1896.
Inspired by the lush environment that surrounded him, "Nature morte aux mangos" epitomises the artist’s life-long search for the primitive and displays the same vividness and sensuous atmosphere and the bright, warm palette that characterised his celebrated Tahitian landscapes and figure paintings. | © Sotheby's
