TWO BARBARIANS IN PARIS: GAUGUIN AND STRINDBERG'S GENDERED DIALOGUE ON TIME AND PLACE

2014 (English)In: French studies, ISSN 0016-1128, E-ISSN 1468-2931, Vol. 68, no 4, 493-509 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In 1895 Paul Gauguin and August Strindberg exchanged two letters, which Gauguin used as a preface to his exhibition catalogue of that year. This article demonstrates that the letters centre on an opposition between the civilized and the primitive; an opposition that is also reflected in the two artists' different journeys to and from Paris, which can be understood as attempts to travel forward (Strindberg) and backward (Gauguin) in time. The article makes use of the dialogue between the travellers, expanded from the two letters to the larger perspective of their 1890s production and transcultural movements, to open a line of inquiry into the fin-de-siecle preoccupation with the clash between the new and the old. It explores how gender and ethnicity are understood in relation to time and place, and how the association between, on the one hand, femininity, the primitive, and the past, and, on the other, masculinity, the civilized, and the future underpins both nostalgic and forward-looking attitudes to time and modernity.
