In the final months of his life, Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) wrote this witty memoir revealing his thoughts about many subjects, including his turbulent friendship with Van Gogh, the charms of Polynesian women, and his often far-from-idyllic life in Tahiti. This beautiful facsimile reproduces the first American translation of the journals, a rare 1921 limited edition privately published in New York. With full-page sketches by the artist and a preface by his son Emile, this handsome book offers a unique insight into Gauguin, the man and the artist.
