From School Library Journal
Grade 8 Up–It is 1891 and Joe Sloan, a half-Mexican, half-American sailor from California, has recently disembarked in Tahiti. His friend Robert was murdered minutes after they arrived, and Joe is left with feelings of grief and revenge. To fulfill a pledge to his friend, he searches for and finds Tehane, the girl Robert loved. When Paul Gauguin arrives in the small village, Joe has several encounters with him; most of them involve insults and punches, but they become friends. Joe's relationship with Tehane also changes as they fall in love. But she, along with the rest of her village, doesn't trust the French artist, which causes a rift in their relationship. This novel is likely to lose readers. In the first three chapters alone, the author begins to develop several topics–the death of Robert,...

From School Library Journal
Grade 7-12-Two books written in a conversational tone that will hold readers' interest. Both titles convey a sense of who the artists were as people-their courage and dedication to their work as well as their arrogance, egoism, or eccentricities, thus creating a well-balanced view. The format is an open and inviting one, and the numerous full-color reproductions are of excellent quality. Engaging and informative.Alexandra Marris, Rochester Public Library, Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Book Description
A century passed between the birth of Flora Tristán and the death of her grandson, the great painter Paul Gauguin. They never met, but both dreamed, each in their own way, with a better world. With this novel we get to know these two great personalities that had similar characteristics: an impressive stubbornness and a bulletproof determination and motivation. Description in Spanish: La historia de Flora Tristán y la de su nieto, el gran pintor Paul Gauguin. Entre el nacimiento de la abuela y la muerte de su nieto ha pasado exactamente un siglo, el XIX. No llegaron a conocerse; Paul nació cuatro años después de la muerte de Flora, pero ambos soñaron, cada uno a su manera, con un mundo mejor. Flora buscó y luchó por una sociedad más justa. Paul, que no era tan altruista,...

From Publishers Weekly
Mathews (Mary Cassatt), curator of the Williams College Museum of Art, has organized notable exhibits of American painting. Given the plethora of titles about the 19th-century French painter Gauguin, a flashy subtitle may have been thought necessary for this new book. Yet Mathews has serious art historical chops and, through 14 chapters, constructs a well-researched narrative about the painter's trajectory, with titles like "Theo and Vincent: Flying Too Close to the Sun." Noting how "central" "sex and violence" were to Gauguin, the author gets a little hung up with her own self-definitions, terming her method "a mixture of pre-Freudian vernacular psychology and postmodern pluralism," adding that she has used "the same commonsense approach" as in her other books. Unable to draw specific conclusions about the...

From AudioFile
Although published in 1919, Maugham's study of a man who abandons a comfortable, conventional life to pursue an overwhelming artistic impulse doesn't seem dated. Reincarnated as an audiobook, it will give pleasure to many who wouldn't pick it up in print. Michael Page is well-chosen as the first-person narrator, a writer who moves on the periphery of the artist's life. His tone and pacing are good, his voice pleasant, and his character voices satisfactory. This is an attractive offering though marred by sound quality. J.N.

Midwest Book Review
Modern artist Gauguin's journals, completed during his final years, appears in a fine reprint from a rare edition to provide Gauguin scholars with the painter's own thoughts and life.

Book Description
Revealing documents, reprinted from rare, limited edition, throw much light on the painter’s inner life, his tumultuous relationship with van Gogh, evaluations of Degas, Monet, and other artists; hatred of hypocrisy and sham, life in the Marquesas Islands, much more. 27 full-page illustrations by Gauguin. Preface by Emil Gauguin.

Book Description
Inspired by a primitive way of life, Paul Gauguin came to reject the world of the Impressionists, leaving Parisian society in search of paradise. Explore the life of this 19th-century French artist through his astonishingly vibrant and exotic paintings. The DK ArtBook series presents both the life and works of each artist within the cultural, social, and political context of their time. To make the books easy to consult, they are divided into three areas -- the life and works of the artist, historical and cultural background, and analysis of major works -- which are identifiable by side bands. Each spread focuses on a specific theme, with an introductory text and several annotated illustrations. Few art history texts contain such abundance of full-color illustrations. The index section is also illustrated and gives...
