'God's Child'  by Paul Gauguin

transmitted 26th Dec 2006

This is a Nativity, and since it is by Paul Gauguin, it is modern and fresh like few recent nativities.  This painting is intensely personal.  The Madonna is Gauguin’s young Polynesian mistress, who was pregnant with his child.    It is a brilliant departure in other ways from traditional nativities, relevant to the contemporary world.
