Three Tahitian Women

Paul Gauguin French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 822

This panel once carried a note by the artist: "To the unknown collector of my works, Greetings— That he may excuse the barbarity of this little picture: the state of my soul is probably the cause. I recommend a modest frame and if possible one with a glass, so that while it ages it can retain its freshness. . . ."
