Great Masterpieces: Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? by Gauguin
The painting by Paul Gauguin, titled 'Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?' is considered the most profound masterpiece in a museum today conveying his vision of Tahiti. But its dealer once had difficulty selling the “large picture”, more than 3m long, as Gauguin called it. It's now acquired by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, since 1936.

By opening up to older artists, is the Turner prize losing its edge?
This year’s the Turner Prize exhibition is opening soon at the Ferens Art Gallery, Hull, East Yorkshire from 26 september to 7 January 2018. In the 1990s, it helped to define a group of British artists known collectively as the YBAs: Hirst, Lucas, Emin. The rules have changed though. The upper-age limit of 50 which has remained until now since when it was implemented in 1991, has been lifted so that artists of any age can participate for the £25,000 prize money. It’s arguable whether that will deprive young artists of the opportunity.
