The canvases that Gauguin sent back to France from the South Seas reflect the license he exercised in fashioning images of Indigenous women. Here, he channeled classicizing nudes, while relying on gesture and facial expression to evoke the ideal “Tahitian Eve” conjured in his writings: “very subtle, very knowing in her naÂ© vetÂ© ” and enviably “capable of walking around naked without shame.” Whispering confidences, offering exotic blossoms or (forbidden) fruit, the women inhabit a tropical Eden of GauguinÂ© ï¿½s invention, in which his artistic visionÂ© ï¿½and male gazeÂ© ï¿½hold sway.
