La Montagna Sacra

The Sacred Mountain

The landscape represented here is just a glimpse of Polynesia: Gauguin paints the sacred mountain, a pure and at the same time wild place, with intense shades. Colour is absolute protagonist: through the use of warm tones Gauguin expresses his emotions of the moment and brings us into his reality. In Polynesia the painter was able to express his spirituality to the utmost: thanks to primitivism he discovered his true dimension of being human and created an exclusive and authentic relationship with the reality of things.

Imported product
The original work is dated 1892 and is conserved at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Philadelphia, USA. Post-impressionist painter, Paul Gauguin is looking for an untouched world far from the society of his time. As to find it, he decided, in 1891, to go to Tahiti, Polynesian island in the south of the Pacific Ocean, and setting of many of his paintings. The landscape represented here is just a glimpse of Polynesia: Gauguin paints the sacred mountain, a pure and at the same time wild place, with intense shades. In the foreground, out of a brown fence with tribal ornaments, he depicts plants with red and pink hues; on the other side of the fence, an immense yellow meadow, from which a Maori statue can be seen, occupies most of the space; behind it you can see some trees with green foliage and mountain peaks, while a blue and serene sky is the background. The artist paints a pure and harmonious territory. Colour is absolute protagonist: through the use of warm tones Gauguin expresses his emotions of the moment and brings us into his reality. In Polynesia the painter was able to express his spirituality to the utmost: thanks to primitivism he discovered his true dimension of being human and created an exclusive and authentic relationship with the reality of things.
