The Day of the God is a representation of Gaugin’s period in Tahiti and is the result of an imaginative interpretation of Polynesian mythology. It portrays Tahitian people on a beach during a religious ritual and is composed ofcontrasting hues, layered into different sections where pink represents the Earth.

After years of developing his technique alongside Pissarro, Gaugin moved to Tahiti where he ended up developing his exotic identity as an artist, pointing to his Peruvian roots which gave him the “primitive” element to his paintings. 

His Post-Impressionist style andtendency to depict real objects and theexpressive use of flat, curving shapes of vibrant color, influenced many artists of the early 20th century.
