The private life of a masterpiece( Visual )

This film tells the story of Gauguin and his painting "God's Child," a reinterpretation of the nativity scene in which he used his 14-year-old, pregnant Tahitian mistress as his model.

Traditionally, decorum prevented Mary from being depicted as if she had really gone through the painful experience of labor, but Gauguin's Mary is clearly worn out from the process of giving birth. It was also extremely daring to show Mary partially naked in a Nativity scene
