Notes

Summary:
In his Tahiti period he often painted on unprimed hessian, or sackcloth, and in many of the paintings done at the time the weave of the rough fabric is clearly visible through the paint. This was partly a consequence of his poverty, as was the thinness of the paint in some of his works, but he had begun to experiment with coarse canvas with Van Gogh in 1888, and found that the hairy surface of sackcloth enhanced the "barbaric" qualities he so much admired.
