Paul Gauguin(1848-1903) L'univers est créé

Lot 5: Paul Gauguin(1848-1903) L'univers est créé

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: "L'univers est créé", A surreal creation story unfolds in this woodblock print. Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) sailed from France to Tahiti in 1891 and didn't return home until two years later. He went there in search of an untouched beauty far away from "everything that is artificial and conventional". Upon his return to Europe, he created a series of ten woodblock prints to accompany a written account of his travels called Noa Noa. The prints, which were only his second attempt at printmaking, are considered some of his most innovative work. "Gauguin's current effort will tomorrow provoke a complete revolution in the art of printmaking," wrote critics Julien Leclerq and Charles Morice. An unrecorded impression probably printed after the edition by Louis Roy. On wove paper in good condition. A fingerprint on the left center margin is noted.

Description: "Untitled (Lavender Murmur)", Tangled abstract forms divide into loosely defined striations, each with its own color theme, in this abstract painting. Michael von Helms takes cues from early action painters such as Willem de Kooning to create his swirling non-objective compositions. Upon entering his studio, he forgets everything but that which is before him and draws no references from anything but the canvases on which he paints. "In the end it is not about attaining, but more about attempting," he says.
