Paul Gauguin...Riders on the Beach, 1902. Private Collection, London. Although this painting pays tribute to Degas' painting of the races at Longchamp, symbolism has by now superseded realism. The two hooded figures in the upper right resemble tupapau, guiding the other riders in their mysterious journey to the other world.
