Gaugin Girl Boxer
45 x 35 x 30cm
Stoneware clay, copper metallic patina and gold leaf
Renowned for his paintings of idyllic Polynesian beauties in the erotic Eden he claimed was Tahiti, was all a fabrication and Gauguin died a twisted and bitter man.
He held no regard for the women he bedded and painted and in today’s world would easily have referenced them as ‘his bitches’.
