A Hamburger Today

Paul Gauguin's Ham

gauguin-theham.jpg The post-impressionist still life of a ham at right "pays homage to Cezanne and Manet while equaling both in its rigor and sensuousness," and was one of the painter Paul Gauguin's first real masterpieces, painted in 1889 before his famous move to Tahiti.

The Ham is now part of the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C., but Fine Art Prints On Demand will happily sell you a print if you'd like one for your wall.)
