Notes

Summary:
Gauguin's title, Faaturuma, is inscribed on the frame of the unidentified landscape painting which hangs on the back wall of the room (surely one of the artist's own works). The Museum's picture evokes a mood of quiet detachment or melancholia and suggests something other than straightforward portraiture. The arabesque forms of the dress and rocking chair seem to accentuate the sitter's isolation, while the simple color scheme based on the primary colors of red, yellow and blue further contribute to the monumental character of the figure. The general composition seems to have been inspired by Corot's La Lettre (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York), a photograph of which is known to have been among Gauguin's possessions in Tahiti.
General Note:
