MADRID French post-Impressionist Paul Gauguin's "Nafea faa ipoipo" (When Will You Marry?) painting, reportedly the most expensive painting ever sold, went on display at Madrid's Reina Sofia Museum on Friday.

The 1892 oil painting of two Tahitian girls was sold earlier this year by the Rudolf Staechelin Family Trust. The New York Times, citing art world sources, said a Qatari buyer had paid around $300 million for the work.



Paul Cezanne's "The Card Players" was previously ranked as the most expensive painting ever sold, with a reported price tag of $250 million.

On Friday Ruedi Staechelin, an art collector and spokesman for the trust, spoke at the unveiling of "Nafea faa ipoipo" at the Madrid museum, where it is on loan, but declined to reveal the price.

"This is not the most valuable painting in this museum. I think Guernica is definitely worth more than this painting, so stop this hype, look at these paintings," he said, referring to Pablo Picasso's famous epic painting from the Spanish Civil War.



"It is not the amount of dollars hanging here. There are wonderful paintings here ... They might not have the same market price but this is art, it is not an investment."



The Gauguin painting was previously on display in Basel. In Madrid, it joins some 60 other artworks at an exhibition running until mid-September.

"It is one of the paintings Gauguin made when he went to Tahiti for the first time," Staechelin said. "It was a happy painting."

STERZING, Italy -- At first glance, Johannes Stoetter's work may have you seeing a parrot, or a chameleon, even a pile of bananas. But Stoetter is a master of using body paint as camouflage. His creations are actually humans, disguised through body paint.



It took him two hours, 10 pounds of bananas, and some paint to turn me into a fruit arrangement. But it's Stoetter's stunning animal creations that have brought him worldwide fame.

The frog he created is actually five interlocking humans. The parrot is a woman, one armed crooked over her head and her leg sticking straight out.



Stoetter is self-taught, but he has a natural gift for analyzing and matching color.

"Sometimes I feel as if something, like a higher power is painting through me, as if I was just a medium," said Stoetter.

Believe it or not, body painting is a competitive event and Stoetter won the World Championship in 2012. But he spends most of his time in the area where he grew up in the Italian Alps.

"Nature was always a strong thing for me," said Stoetter. "I think that inspired me very deeply."



Stoetter has experimented with camouflage against various natural backgrounds, but it's the tropical animal images that have become online sensations.

The creative business of painting fun and imaginative designs on faces is a good idea for stay-at-home moms and stay-at-home dads wanting to make money. Having the skills to paint faces is also excellent for teens and college students needing part-time work.





A face painting business can be operated on a flexible schedule (generally on weekends at parties and social events) with minimal supplies. It can be a small creative part time job or grow into a larger company, expanded with employees to cover more fairs, parties and events.

Start a Face Painting Business with Research and a Business Plan

As with any business, the first place to start is with research and a business plan. A business plan is a written report of the results of research and mathematical figures. Unless a face painter wishes to run a non-profit organization, numbers will need to be crunched.

Face Paintings Business Plan Ideas

To figure out the feasibility and possibilities of a business, several things will need to be researched. The following ideas are relevant to looking into face painting as a job option.



Check out the competition. What are they offering? What do they charge? Where and when are they painting? How do they advertise?What supplies does one need for this kind of business?Where are face painting supplies available? Can a wholesale price be obtained?How much start-up cash will it take to start the business?How many hours of unpaid practice will it take to become good enough to work with the public?How about employees or a partner?What will your prices be?What licenses, etc. are mandatory in the areas you wish to work?



These and other considerations need to be figured in order to get a clear view of the entire venture. It is helpful to write the information down for future reference.

Keeping Children and Other Customers Safe

Snazaroo face paint products web site offers business and creative advice on their website. Safety for customers needs to be a prime concern. In an article by Gary Cole on the Snazaroo, he is insistent that children must be kept safe from inferior paints, writing, "...there is no excuse for using acrylics or other non-safe paints." Snazaroo is one of a few companies that make very safe paints and and other good quality products.



Snazaroo Offers this Good Advice for Starting a Face Painting Business:

When nearly ready to launch the new business, Snazaroo's suggestions include investing money in a professional painting kit, including a good selection of face painting brushes in various sizes.

Cole also recommends that once a business is launches, one should begin acting as a professional. When possible, consider ways to advertise, obtain business cards, order a business phone line, and look into applying for a business license and business insurance.

Add these expenses to the business plan and the business will begin to take shape.

For more helpful information, also see the articles Face Painting Ideas for Beginners and How to Paint Faces at a Birthday Party or Event, as well as the website How to Start a Face Painting Business.
