COU65740 Te Rerioa (Day Dreaming), 1897 (for detail see 65741) by Gauguin, Paul (1848-1903); 95.1x130.2 cm; Samuel Courtauld Trust, The Courtauld Gallery, London, UK; (add.info.: When Gauguin journeyed to Tahiti for the second time, in 1895, he had a stopover in New Zealand. While awaiting his ship to be serviced, he spent time at the Auckland Museum, which held a collection of Maori art. Among the objects that he encountered there was an elaborately carved decorative bowl with two figures that formed the handles. Two years later Gauguin included a painted version of the wooden bowl in The Dream, but he converted it into a cradle for a sleeping baby. The dream of the title is uncertain. As Gauguin suggested, "Everything is dreamlike about this canvas; is it the child, is it the mother, is it the horseman on the path? Or is it the painter\'s dream); PERMISSION REQUIRED FOR UK PRODUCT LICENSING; MANIPULATION OF THE IMAGE FORBIDDEN; French, out of copyright...PLEASE NOTE: Bridgeman Images works with the owner of this image to clear permission.
