Linda Goddard, "Savage Tales: The Writings of Paul Gauguin" (Yale UP, 2019)

In Savage Tales: The Writings of Paul Gauguin (Yale University Press, 2019), Linda Goddard investigates the role that Paul Gauguin’s writings played in his artistic practice and in his negotiation of his colonial identity.

As a French artist who lived in Polynesia, Gauguin occupies a crucial position in histories of European primitivism, but this is the first book to be devoted to his wide-ranging literary output, including his journalism, travel writing, art criticism, and essays on aesthetics, religion, and politics.

In the book, Dr. Goddard analyzes what are often richly illustrated manuscripts and she counters the tendency to interpret these writings merely as a source of information about his life. Instead, she reveals how the seemingly haphazard structure of Gauguin’s manuscripts were an important part of an artistic practice that ranged across media, one that enabled him to evoke the “primitive” culture that he so celebrated.

This critical analysis of his writings significantly enriches our understanding of the complexities of artistic encounters in the French colonial context.

Linda Goddard is senior lecturer in art history at the University of St. Andrews.

Allison Leigh is Assistant Professor of Art History and the SLEMCO/LEQSF Regents Endowed Professor in Art & Architecture at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Her research explores European and Russian art of the eighteenth through the early twentieth centuries.

Episode 26: Paul Gauguin

Play
Read more
Best known for his post-impressionistic art, Paul Gauguin’s legacy has been too-long romanticized. He was, at best, an artist on a lifelong quest to find inspiration in the lives of people indigenous to Caribbean and Polynesian Islands. More realistically, though, he was a floundering artist who appropriated cultures and preyed on children.

May 2011 - June Hargrove, professor of 19th-century European painting and sculpture, University of Maryland at College Park. Professor June Hargrove discusses artist Paul Gauguin's struggle in the final months of his life, after moving to the Marquesas Islands, to show the world his contributions to the creative process. Recorded on May 15, 2011, and held in conjunction with the exhibition Gauguin: Maker of Myth, this lecture examines the paintings from 1902 and attests that, for all his talk of savagery and cannibalism, Gauguin created some of his most serene masterpieces during this time.
