The peculiarity of the picturesque manner of Paul Gauguin was reflected in a special way in the “Landscape on the Island of Martinique”, created by him in 1887.

A variety of shades forms iridescent overflows. Colorful strokes are located not sweaty to each other, but as if with gaps. Why create the effect of a vibrant, lively image. The image of the stream in the foreground of the picture is different with respect to the interesting coloristic solution in which it is executed. The stream seems to sparkle and entices with its glitter and light purple glow, rebuilding the space around, giving it an element of magical fairy-tale worlds.
