Brings together the "modernist primitivism of the French painter Paul Gauguin, the nostalgic exoticism of the American artist John La Farge, and the elite tourism of the American writer Henry Adams" and how they "wrestled with the elusiveness of paradise and portrayed colonial Tahiti in ways both mythic and modern." Based on much fresh archival research in Europe, America, and the South Pacific.
