Sharing the Passion for the islands of Tahiti

Gauguin's magic rainbow

The strength and beauty of these far away islands rest in the diversity of their colors and their stunning landscapes, of course in the ubiquitous shades of blue of the magnificent lagoons competing with the warm green of tropical forests, but also the variety of flower fragrances and colors of the hibiscus, tiare and other plumerias decorating the pareos, the bright oranges of the golden sunsets, and finally the fleeting purple dusks so dear to Gauguin.

He himself summed up this magic rainbow with: " Here near my home, I dream of violent harmonies whose natural fragrances inebriate me ".

After all, Gauguin didn't invent anything, he just highlighted reality!
