The colours and patterns of the art of the Pacific Islands — spears and shields, carved canoe prows, feather capes or tortoisehell ornaments — have interested Western audiences since the voyages of Captain Cook and Bougainville. Oceanic art in particular, had an influence on the development of the European modernist movement, influencing artists such as Gauguin, Picasso, Giacometti and Kirchner.
