In the New York Times 2014 Holiday Gift Guide, Roberta Smith writes, "If you can have only one Gauguin book, the Museum of Modern Art's catalog for its Gauguin: Metamorphoses exhibition last spring is a very strong candidate. It is distinguished by excellent essays by Starr Figura, who organized the show, as well as by Elizabeth Childs, Hal Foster and Erika Mosier. Moreover, its multimedia approach places new emphasis on the way motifs migrated among the artist's woodcuts, transfer drawings, carved wood sculpture, paintings and ceramics. The result is a much expanded sense of Gauguin's inventiveness, his working methods and how much he accomplished during his relatively brief maturity."Parau na te varua ino (Words of the Devil) (1892) is reproduced from Gauguin: Metamorphoses.
