Part of a series of exciting and luxurious Flame Tree Notebooks. Combining high-quality production with magnificent fine art, the covers are printed on foil in five colours, embossed, then foil stamped. And they're powerfully practical: a pocket at the back for receipts and scraps, two bookmarks and a solid magnetic side flap. These are perfect for personal use and make a dazzling gift. This example features National Gallery: A Vase of Flowers by Paul Gauguin.
This painting was produced in Tahiti after Paul Gauguin's final move there from France. It was sold by his friend Daniel de Monfreid in 1898 to Edgar Degas, who was an early admirer of Gauguin's art. Flower paintings were common among the painters of this period Degas and Van Gogh are among the greatest exponents of the type.
