Paul Gauguin

Gauguin as never seen before and perhaps never again.

Six years in the making, this is the ultimate Paul Gauguin exhibition. His Tahitian ladies, draped in tropical flowers and exuding languid sexuality enhance the transparent beauty of the Renzo Piano building. The Beyeler Foundation never ceases to produce some of the best exhibitions in current times, and yet it brands this one its most prestigious and ambitious to date. Among the 43 paintings and 8 sculptures is 'When Will You Marry', on loan from the family of a Swiss collector. It is said to have been sold to the Qatar royal family for 300 million USD, the highest price by a long shot ever paid for a painting.
