Vividly printed scarf based on 'Mahana No Atua' (‘Day of the God'), painted by French post-Impressionist artist Paul Gauguin ( 1848 — c.1894) and now held in the Art Institute of Chicago. Gauguin's vibrant works played with experimental colour and he captured exotic scenes of French Polynesia towards the end of his life, depicting both its people and landscapes in lucid colour. Day of the God was painted in France between Gauguin's stays in the South Pacific, presenting an imaginiary, dream-like depiction of the world he had experienced. This printed silk scarf comes to life in mesmerising green, orange and blue hues reflecting the artist's use of Synthetism, whereby a picture was viewed as a flat surface covered with assembled patterns and colours. Gauguin, too, was a proponent of Primitivism — a critical development in the history of modern art that looked to non-Western styles and experiences. A type of wearable art, our Mahana No Atua Scarf in flowing silk will lift the soul and spirit.
