Paul Gauguin, Sans Pants, Playing a Harmonium

It was 1895, and in the studio of Alphonse Mucha. That's all the context that we have. We don't know why Post-Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin took off his pants. But we should not be surprised. William-Adolphe Bouguereau would live for another ten years, but the Academic traditions of realistic representation and wearing pants were already dead.
