Ta Matete

This work was produced in 1892 and it is now kept at the Kunst Museum in Basel. "Ta matete" is the title of this painting and it means "The market".

This work was produced in 1892 and it is now kept at the Kunst Museum in Basel. "Ta matete" is the title of this painting and it means "The market". The reference to some elements of Japanese inspiration is evident throughout the canvas: marked outlines and clear separation of the colour fields, and Egyptian: the compositional structure is typical of African ornaments. In the centre of the picture Gauguin represents five Maori women sitting on a bench and dressed in long colourful dresses. Their pose resembles that of the Egyptian goddesses: the straight torso and the lower part of the body displaced sideways. Looking at them and standing, it is depicted only partially another woman dressed in a white T-shirt and a colourful skirt. The painter wrote about these portrayed women: "The proportions of the body distinguish a Maori woman among all women and she is often confused with a man. She is like a Diana huntress, but with broad shoulders and a narrow pelvis. However thin a woman's arm is, it has a poorly visible structure. It is flexible and very graceful. The thigh is very vigorous, but not wide and this makes it appear very round (...) the skin is golden yellow. " Trees with a blue trunk stand out against the background of the picture; blue colour is taken by Gauguin to draw the shorts of the men who are moving on the right. The unnatural and artificial tones used (the blue of the trunks of the trees, the red and the green of the floor and the vegetation) reveal a sort of rebellion of the painter against the aesthetic canons imposed by art at the time. In his works Gauguin expresses strongly the main concepts of his painting: authenticity and naturalness.
