Artwork information from the museum (© - by Art Institute Chicago -

Returning to Tahiti in the fall of 1895, Paul Gauguin was soon beset by physical ailments and financial difficulties. Despite this, in 1896–97 he painted a group of impressive canvases in a larger format than his usual works. He based Why Are You Angry? on an earlier Tahitian composition but changed the mood of the painting: here the principal figures are larger and disengaged from one another, their postures and characters more difficult to interpret. The interrogative title encourages the viewer to seek some sort of narrative, but the imagery resists a definitive reading.

The colors of the print are luminous in the highest definition, details of the print appear crisp, and there’s a matte look that you can literally feel.

The poster is particularly suited for putting the art print in a customized frame. Please note, that depending on the size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm round about the print motif to facilitate the framing.
