VIEW IN MY ROOM
Painting: Acrylic, Oil on Canvas.
Inspired by a visit to a Gauguin exhibition some years ago at the Tate modern . Seeing his unfinished work "Tahitians at rest" . It seemed to be telling a story so I wanted to complete it. There is controversy surrounding this work as to whether it was painted by Gauguin himself. Or whether it is a fake. Well this one definitely is a fake! But I have tried to remain true to his style deliberately changing the background. I obviously had to guess at colours also.
It was fun to do. But will be my first and last attempt to get into Gauguins head .
