"This morning Mr. Justice Morgan at the High Court in London gave his verdict on the court case relating to the sale of Paul Gauguin’s masterpiece Nafea faa Ipoipo. I am delighted with the outcome of this case and the fact that justice has prevailed. It was a privilege for Michaela de Pury and I to have arranged the sale of this fabulous painting. It is regrettable that for the first time in over 45 years in the art market I was forced to issue legal proceedings. Michaela and I had to wait for more than three years for our role in this transaction to be recognized. We both greatly look forward to our continued activities in the art world." Simon DePury
