Paul Gauguin made a radical decision at middle age: abandon his lucrative brokerage business, wife and children to pursue his passion for painting and escape civilized life in pursuit of his dreams of travel and exotic world exploration. Propelled by an irresistibly creative force, Gauguin left home to embark on his voyage that led him from Panama where he worked on canal construction to Martinique where the extreme temperatures almost claimed his life - until 17 months of poverty in France saw him again heading south - Tahiti, Marquesas Islands and La Dominique eventually led him back out again to Tropical destinations until finally La Dominique where he met his final death alone in 1874.

Gauguin created this painting, dating from 1892, shortly after his arrival on Tahiti. Feeling disenchanted with European influence in bustling Papeete, Gauguin sought solace in Tahiti's interior by immersing himself in local culture. During this blissful period, Gauguin developed his theories on color analogy to music: He asked himself whether "repetitions of repeated tones and monotonous color harmonies could be likened to oriental chants sung at high pitches with accompanying pulsed notes that intensifies their impact through contrast? "

Gauguin's South Seas canvases are known for utilizing vibrant pairings of complementary colors that create attractive and captivating patterns, without restriction or modulation, such as orange and blue, yellow and violet and green and red; creating captivating and almost abstract compositions. His piece "Fatata Te Miti," or by the Sea, stands as proof of Gauguin's mastery of his newly coined style in which colors were utilized as freely as music composition; perhaps this piece inspired Mallarme, the symbolist poet, to refer to Gauguin's work as "musical poem" since this piece transcended any need for lyrics

Gauguin's artistic journey is illuminated in this visually arresting masterpiece. "Fatata te Miti" perfectly showcases Gauguin's avant-garde style and his commitment to exploring all corners of creativity.
