The Colours on Gauguin’s Palette

Paul Gauguin (French, 1848 – 1903)

If you’ve never been to a spot in the world where the colours around you change dramatically with the setting sun, as Gauguin experienced when he went from France to the Pacific Ocean Island of Tahiti, then you may well believe he simply made up the colours in his paintings. But, unrealistic and implausible as they may seem, he was simply painting the colours he saw, something that had long been his philosophy.

Colours Gauguin regularly used included Prussian blue, cobalt blue, emerald green, viridian, cadmium yellow, chrome yellow, red ochre, cobalt violet, and lead or zinc white. He believed in: “Pure colour! Everything must be sacrificed to it.” Yet, overall, his tones were muted, and quite close together.

From a portable palette found in his painting studio after he died, it would appear Gauguin didn’t put out his colours in any particular order. Nor does he seem to have ever cleaned his palette, instead mixing fresh colours on top of dried-up paint.

Gauguin himself had trouble believing the colours he saw, saying: “Everything in the landscape blinded me, dazzled me. Coming from Europe I was constantly uncertain of some colour [and kept] beating about the bush: and yet it was so simple to put naturally onto my canvas a red and a blue. In the brooks, forms of gold enchanted me. Why did I hesitate to pour that gold and all the rejoicing of the sunshine on to my canvas?”…/colourthe…/a/palette_Gauguin.htm
