122-yr-old painting sold for €9.5M

PARIS: A rare canvas by French artist Paul Gauguin from his time in Tahiti fetched 9.5 million euros ($10.5 million) in Paris on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila), nearly twice its estimated value, the auction house said. The bidding had drawn keen interest amid growing controversy over Gauguin’s relationships with young girls on the Polynesian island and his depictions of them. The 1897 painting, “Te Bourao 2” or “tree” in the local Tahitian language, had been expected to go for around five to seven million euros.
