Showing my ignorance here, but I was only familiar with Gauguin’s paintings. To see a different view of this sculpture, go here.
Paul Gauguin’s “Jeune tahitienne”, a sculpture carved during the artist’s first trip to Tahiti between 1891 and 1893, is seen at Sotheby’s in New York. The intricate wooden bust is expected to sell for as much as $15 million when it is auctioned on May 3, according to Sotheby’s. It depicts a young, unidentified Tahitian woman and includes jewelry which Gauguin made himself using seashells and pieces of red coral. REUTERS/Mike Segar.
My sisters and I are taking turns staying with our mother, so, combined with all the other multitude of tasks that need to be done, I have not been weaving. I am planning on changing that soon. The doctor prescribed a round of prednisone (the wonder drug, as far as I am concerned) for Mother. She has done a 360 and is like herself again. Combine that with the plan to find someone to come in and stay, the “sisters” should be able to function at a more normal level. Of course, there is that show that will get hung next week, a trip to pick up some pieces before hanging, and probate court. Oh, and I insist on getting a haircut before the opening reception! I am not even going to say anything about preparing for the reception. And need I mention taxes? Nothing done in that area. Let’s see, maybe weaving again in what century?
