Thomas de Hartmann’s “Chants Maoris”

Thomas de Hartmann Papers, MSS 46, Box 19 Folders 154 & 155

Russian composer Thomas de Hartmann (1886-1956) found great inspiration in the art of Vincent Van Gogh, Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Gauguin. He dedicated his “Chants Maoris” (op. 12 & op. 15) to the memory of Gaugin, who was known for his extensive travels and idealized portrayals of so-called “primitive” cultures.
