Having just read Gauguin's intimate journals I can't say I came away feeling much warmth for the man, however he really painted from the heart and provided us with gems like this, "I shut my eyes in order to see". So Mr.Gauguin thanks for inspiring this particular paint.
A deep, muted reddish orange hue, it has the flickering, vibrational qualities of which he was so keen. Semi-opaque and excellent lightfastness, with a fair dollop of Cadmium Red pigment in there this also has good tinting power.
"It is the eye of ignorance that assigns a fixed and unchangeable colour to every object; beware of this stumbling block" - P.Gauguin
Wonderful stuff, this is an inspired paint to inspire painters.
