Two Tahitian girls sold for £197m

86C4574B-B544-4AC4-98B9-712C127204EC_w640_r1_s_cx0_cy18_cw0I bet when Victorian Post-Impressionist Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin finished his paining of two Tahitian girls he never in his wildest dreams could have been sold for a whopping £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 and it now seems 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.
