This piece belongs to the Post-Impressionism art movement and is categorized within the genre of landscape. The piece currently resides within the prestigious collection of the Solomon R.

In scrutinizing the artwork, one observes a vivid and emotive portrayal of a tropical landscape. Gauguin’s characteristic use of bold colors and strong outlines is evident in this composition. The scene unfolds with a vibrant sunset sky that casts a warm glow over the verdant terrain. Flora typical of French Polynesia, including palms and other tropical trees, punctuates the painting, contributing to the exotic atmosphere. In the foreground, two figures are depicted, possibly animals, engrossed in their surrounding environment, which appears lush and untamed. The landscape is punctuated by a set of humble structures that blend harmoniously with their natural surroundings, highlighting the interplay between man and nature which frequently intrigued Gauguin. The brushstrokes convey a sense of movement and life, hallmark traits of Post-Impressionism, where artists sought to convey their personal impressions and emotions rather than simply mimicking reality.
