Abandoned garden by Paul Gauguin

Abandoned garden by Paul Gauguin

It is possible that someone will consider the artist’s predilection to be a display of the perverted taste of painting marshes, bare trees, killed animals and birds. But is not it better to recognize as a given that artists and poets have their own law, and it differs radically from the generally accepted one?

In the end, and autumn for someone – it’s time to wither, or even die of nature. It all depends on which angle of view to take. Paul Gauguin was not always an exotic Tahitian artist. His creative practice was associated with Paris, and with the views of the French province.

In ordinary everyday landscapes, he also drew sparks of inspiration. Once Gauguin painted an abandoned garden – most likely, that it was somewhere in the Paris suburbs. Why can you make such an assumption? The territory itself, which once smelled and fruited, is surrounded by a high, deaf Fence, and in the depths of the picture the outlines of a rich mansion, private property are guessed.

That part of the stone fence, which opens to the public on the right, leaves no doubt – plastered brickwork for many years, and, hence, the trees of the garden – too. It is more than likely that Gauguin painted in the autumn season, when the foliage on the trees is almost not guessed, and the branches are weaved in a strange, unimaginable color. Almost nothing reminiscent of the “golden” pore of fruiting and flowering.
