An 1892 oil on canvas, Parau Api (What's New?), by Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) the French post-impressionist painter. Painted in Tahiti. In a letter to his wife, Gauguin wrote: "And these people are called savages!...They sing; they never steal; my door is never closed; they do not kill. Two Tahitian words describe them: Iorama (good morning, good-bye, thanks)...and Onatu (I don't care, what does it matter?)". (Galerie Neue Meister, Dresden, Germany)
