    HISTORY OF THE COPY

    The Stuttgart State Museum had only one, early, original version of the painting - The Woman Holding the Fetus (which was not very popular). While The State Hermitage Museum (Saint Petersburg, Russia) had a later version of this painting which looked much better. Therefore The Stuttgart State Museum commissioned a copy of later version of this story from the State Hermitage Museum.

    Artists-restorers of the State Hermitage painted a free copy of the painting by Paul GAUGUIN, repeating the technique of creation (oil on canvas), with good accuracy of subject and colour scheme. The copy is 51 x 41 cm, while the original is much bigger - 92,5 x 73,5 cm (36,2'' x 28,7'').

    Historically, this copy-painting has spent most of its life in a private collection in Ukraine. That is how the presented on this auction copy of "The Woman Holding the Fetus" came into being (signed on the back - June 1968, Kulikovskaya).

    HISTORY OF THE ORIGINAL PAINTING

    One of Paul Gaugen's most recognisable paintings, The Woman Holding the Fetus, is also known by title "Eu haere ia oe?" ("Where are you going?"), written in 1893, during his first visit to Tahiti.
    Paul Gauguin (Paul Gauguin; 1848-1903) linked his own art to the distant island of Tahiti. He found his ideal of beauty in the image of a young Tahitian with broad shoulders, a strong torso and a peculiar facial contours with prominent plump lips, wide wings of the nose and striking almond-shaped eyes. To convey a peculiar world where man and nature live in harmony, Gauguin departed from many of the traditions of European painting. He rejected aerial perspective, light and shade modelling. Decorativeness and monumentalism are the main characteristics of his artistic manner.

    In Gauguin's works, the observation of real life and everyday life of the peoples of Oceania is gradually intertwined with local myths. The Tahitian woman holding a mango fruit is painted in a beautiful, sophisticated golden brown tone. Gauguin's first Tahitian wife, Tehoura, may have served as the model. The landscape, like the figure, is interpreted in a very generalised way in the painting. Patches of gold, red, pink and green make the canvas look like a decorative colourful carpet.
