The ten most expensive paintings in history

1)  $300m “When Will You Marry” by Paul Gauguin

11 Gauguin's 1982 picture of two Tahitian girls smashed the record for the world's most expensive single work of art, when Qatar bought the canvas from a Swiss collector for almost $300 million in February. It was painted during Gauguin's first trip to Tahiti, where he said he travelled to escape "everything that is artificial and conventional" in Europe.
