In August 1895, Paul Gauguin spent ten days in Auckland, en route to Tahiti for the second and final time. During his stay he visited the Auckland Art Gallery and the Auckland Museum, and recorded in a sketchbook details of some of the fine Maori and Polynesian artefacts he observed. When Gauguin left Auckland he took with him a small, but vital collection, of new images, several of which were later to appear in major paintings. This work is a celebration of the centenary of Gauguin's visit to Auckland. For the first time the complete sketchbook is reproduced, and most of the artefacts he sketched at the Auckland Museum are identified and illustrated. Actual objects and details of these are clearly evident in the reproductions of some of Gauguin's most celebrated paintings, demonstrating the significance for Gauguin's subsequent work of his first-hand encounter with Maori art.
