Apart from the multimedia features, The Great Modernists exhibition includes a special forehall aimed at clarifying the logic that leads the Modernist artists from Realism to the Black Square. The Architectons by Mikhail Roshnyak are also going to form part of the exposition. They continue the work started by Kazimir Malevich.

The Architectons are a kind of white extension of the Black Square. This is a step towards the perfect 3D form. Some call architecture a frozen music, so the architectons are an incarnation of 3D avant-garde music.

«When Are You Going to Get Married?»

Today the most expensive painting in the world is Nafea Faa Ipoipo (When Are You Going to Get Married?), painted by Paul Gauguin in 1892. According to the New York Times, it was purchased for USD 300 million, although Rudolf Stähelin, the seller, a Basel-based collector, has not disclosed the price or the name of the new owner. The figure of USD 300 million and the details of the purchaser (the Museums of Qatar) were disclosed by Baer Faxt information resource.

Now, insiders at the New York Times tell us that, yes, the painting was purchased by the Qatar Museums, and the price was negotiated sometime after last year. Mr. Stähelin, however, has neither confirmed nor disproved this information. The Qatar Museums, by the way, did not return our calls and e-mails.. This is just a reminder that the previous record price for a piece of art was also paid by Qatar. It is believed that the Qatar royal family paid USD 259 million for the Card Players by Paul Cézanne.
