This is lyrical Near The Sea (Fatata Te Miti) by Paul Gauguin. He fled the confines of civilized Europe in search of the mysterious tropics. Infuse some exotic color to your daily routine with the romance and drama in his vision of Tahiti. This chart or kit makes a delightful gift for your favorite dreamer.
In an uncompromising search for a pristine environment in which to paint, Gauguin found his utopia in the exotic wilderness of Tahiti. In Near The Sea Gauguin pictured the perfect life of his earthly paradise. With a pageantry of luxuriant colors and flat patterns, our adaptation evokes a flawless time when people lived in harmony with their environment. The original is housed in The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
