An 1892 oil on canvas, What! Are You Jealous? (Aha ae feii?), by Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) the French post-impressionist painter. Painted in Tahiti. Typical of the artist's use of saturated colour in this period, Gauguin described the work as "On the shore, two sisters are lying after bathing, in the graceful poses of resting animals, they speak of yesterday's love and tomorrow's conquests. The recollection causes them to quarrel: 'What! Are you jealous?'" (Pushkin Museum, Moscow)
