The Courtauld Institute of Art in London made a splash at the weekend by announcing that it has acquired an important manuscript by the artist Paul Gaugin (1848-1903). The manuscript contains 213 pages worth of drawings, writings and other ephemera. The document was accepted as part of the acceptance in lieu of tax scheme negotiated by Sotheby's.

Here is Waldemar Januszczack's take on the document in his weekly column for the Sunday Times.
