Odalisque by Gauguin
The new gallery of 19th and 20th-century art at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow includes Gauguin's "Te Arii Vahine" ("The King's Wife"), from 1896. She's posed like an odalisque, but she's the king's wife (not a slave girl). By the way, my new painting will be unveiled early next week. It has taken much longer than expected.
