The world's most expensive painting
July 4, 2017
In 2015, Paul Gauguin’s masterpiece Nafea faa ipoipo (When will you marry?) was sold to the Qatary royal family at the price of $300m, and at that moment it was declared to be the world's most expensive painting. A study of two Tahitian girls was painted in 1892 during Gauguin's first trip to Tahiti, where he said he travelled to escape "everything that is artificial and conventional" in Europe.
At present, the lawsuit placed by one of the parties of the deal revealed to the public that the actual price of the acquisition was of $210m. However, even with this "reduced" price, it still remains among the world's most expensive paintings, surpassed only by Paul Cézanne´s The Card Players, sold at $274m in 2011.
