#2 “When Will You Marry?” By Paul Gauguin ($300M)
A beautiful art piece like this was acquired by a Swiss art collector named Rudolf Staechelin. He was acclaimed to be the owner of the famous painting Nafea Faa Ipoipo?, or When will you Marry? by Paul Gauguin. But, it is now one of the most expensive artwork to be sold by him.
The beautiful oil painting depicting two Tahitian women got very little or almost no acclaim to the artist during his lifetime but, whether you agree with it or not, everything that is good comes with a good price. It was said to be sold at a hefty price of approximately $300M to the Qatar Princess, Sheikha Al-Mayassa Bint Hamad Al-Thani.
