When Will You Marry Me - Paul Gauguin

Price in US $ - 300 million

When Will You Marry? (Tahitian: Nafea faa ipoipo) is an oil painting from 1892 by the French Post-Impressionist artist Paul Gauguin. In 1891 Gauguin - the founding father of Primitivism - travelled to Tahiti in search of an edenic paradise where he could create pure, “primitive” art.

Paul Gauguin’s innovations in color treatment would ultimately set the stage for Fauvism and Expressionism.
