Vintage XL laminate of Paul Gauguin’s 1892 “Are you jealous? (AHA OE FEII)” Work
Okay the IR nerd in me is living! This piece is dated from the time that the U.S.S.R. still existed.
This Vintage Gauguin laminate was part of the “IMPRESSIONIST TO EARLY MODERN PAINTINGS FROM THE U.S.S.R.” Collection of works from the Hermitage Museum of Leningrad and the Pushkin Museum of fine arts of Moscow. It is a laminate of Paul Gauguin’s 1892 “Are you jealous? (AHA OE FEII)” work depicting women in French Polynesia.
Fun fact: The vogue for Gauguin's work started soon after his death. Many of his later paintings were acquired by the Russian collector Sergei Shchukin. A substantial part of his collection is displayed in the Pushkin Museum and the Hermitage.
It was part of my personal collection and now I am ready to let it go. The colours are so rich and I want this piece to find the best home possible.

Minor minor imperfections as seen in pictures but nothing that takes away it’s overall beauty. As we know, vintage is meant to be imperfectly perfect.
