Gauguin painting breaks sale record at nearly $300m




A painting of two Tahitian girls by the French artist Paul Gauguin has been sold for $300m (£197m), making it the most expensive work of art ever sold.
Nafea Faa Ipoipo, or When Will You Marry?, was painted in 1892 and had been owned by a Swiss collector.
Unconfirmed reports suggest it was sold to a museum in Qatar.
The small oil-rich state paid the previous highest price for a painting, a work by Paul Cezanne which sold for a reported £158m.
Before its sale, the Gauguin artwork had been owned by Rudolf Staechelin, a collector from Basel.
For decades it had been on loan to the Kunstmuseum Basel but Mr Staechelin decided to sell the painting after a disagreement with the museum, US media report.

Definitely it deserves that price tag, because it's an amazing drawing. The pic itself is a treat for eyes, but when you know it's title as "When Will You Marry?", it gets even better impression.
