Answer
Hello Lucy,

I believe that this work is an 1894 oil painting by Paul Gauguin entitled "Day of the Gods" as seen on the link below: http://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/exhibitions/Impressionism/Gauguin.

For a bit more information on Gauguin,  I can perhaps recommend the below link:  http://www.theartstory.org/artist-gauguin-paul.htm

Hope this helps!

Best,

Andrew Evans
