About Beach at Le Pouldu

The artwork “Beach at Le Pouldu” is a creation of the renowned artist Paul Gauguin from the year 1889. Originating in France, this piece is executed in oil on canvas and is a quintessential example of the Cloisonnism movement. The dimensions of the artwork are 73 x 92 cm, and it is categorized as a landscape. Currently, this painting is part of a private collection.

The painting depicts a coastal scene with a vivid display of colors and a strong sense of movement conveyed through the brushstrokes. The beach in the foreground has shades of orange and red, contrasted with the cool, greenish tones of the sea, capturing the lively interplay of earth and water. The sky is not clearly discerned, suggesting a fusion of the ocean’s horizon with the atmospheric conditions. The artwork’s cloisonnist style is evident in its bold outlines and flat areas of color, conveying a sense of rhythm that accentuates the natural forms. The lack of precise detail invites the viewer to focus on the overall composition and emotional effect of the seascape. Gauguin’s signature can be seen in the lower left corner, marking his authorship of this expressive work.
