Details     Description
   
Artist Gauguin, Eugène Henri Paul

“I’ve taken advantage of the postponement of the naval vessel’s departure for ten days to do another canvas that I think is even better than the previous ones, despite being executed in haste , Te Reroia (The Dream), that’s the title . Everything is dream-like in this canvas; is it the child, is it the mother, is it the horseman on the path? Or is it the painter’s dream! People will say all that is nothing to do with painting. Who knows. Perhaps not.”
Gauguin’s letter to Daniel de Monfreid, 12 March 1897
