Blog #6 The Yellow Christ

      The Yellow Christ was painted in 1889 by Paul Gauguin and was oil on canvas. I chose this because of what the image is depicting, Jesus being crucified and I like the bright colors and the background giving it an impressionist style. Some believe that the artist made this painting of Christ on the cross as a self-portrait.  This depiction of the male artist as a superior being is a way of showing that he is an independent man and this image had a deep meaning.
