“Self-Portrait with the Yellow Christ” by Paul Gauguin
A few years ago, in a Paris Museum, I was quite shocked to see this Self Portrait in which Gauguin poses himself in front of his “Yellow Christ” painting, as I did 20 years ago, in my own Self-Portrait. I did not know this painting existed when I painted my version. Fact: Paul Gauguin left a lucrative career as a stock broker to peruse his passion for art. Another fact: GNAY left a lucrative career as a stock broker to pursue his passion for art. Are you mentally connecting the dots? The last Gauguin that came up for auction in 2015 fetched over $300,000,000. Mine, only $1500. That leaves quite a bit of wiggle room.
