Another hand, is it an octopus?..... Has the colour been altered? Now looking at Gaugin and his exotic period.

Andrey Matveev (Ca. 1702-39)
Self-portrait of the Artist with his Wife




Now this next one should be a quickie, God bless her . . she's been through a lot of hassle already . . on top of which I have now reduced her to awful mosaic tiles in an effort to camouflage her appearance from ye . . . however her basic composition is still legible.

Hiya Yikert . . Welcome to the thread.
