Volpini Suite: Laundresses (Les Laveuses), 1889. Creator: Paul Gauguin (French, 1848-1903)

Volpini Suite: Laundresses (Les Laveuses), 1889. Gauguin discovered an exotic, primitive culture in Brittany, a rugged region on the Atlantic coast in northwestern France. He then sought to translate into expressive forms the picturesque costumes, customs, and special spirituality of the peasants. The unusual point of view, the stylization of the frothing water, and the cropped cow at the lower left all betray the influence of Japanese woodblock prints, which became popular in France from the early 1860s. The twelve lithographs in this set, printed from zinc plates rather than stones, were Gauguin's first attempts at printmaking. To heighten the decorative effect, the lithographs were printed onto large sheets of bright yellow paper.

Noa Noa: The Devil Speaks (Mahna No Varua Ino) (recto); Women Washing Clothes (verso), 1893-1894

Noa Noa: The Devil Speaks (Mahna No Varua Ino) (recto); Women Washing Clothes (verso), 1893-1894. When Gauguin returned to Paris from Tahiti in 1893, he conceived a book that would describe his life among the natives and place his South Seas paintings within a context. Gauguin produced ten woodcuts to illustrate Noa Noa. Printed by hand, sometimes on coloured paper, these prints have a rough-hewn, coarse quality that enhances the subject matter. An experimental printmaker, Gauguin varied inks, papers, colours, printing pressure, and even modes of printing so that each impression is unique. He would sometimes ink the woodblock unevenly, creating a partially incomprehensible image on many first-state impressions and increasing the scene's mystery and ambiguity, as here. In 1921 Pola Gauguin inked and wiped the block so that the subject is visible clearly.
