  1. You are far away of having traced down the most expansive painting in the world! To my knowledge, this happens to be a work of Paul Gauguin painted in 1892 and entitled “Nafea faa ipoipo” (which in tahitian means “When will you marry”). It was once owned by swiss collector Rudolf Staehelin, who bought it in 1917, and sold in 2015 by his grandson to the emir of Quatar for an alleged price of $300 million.
