A painting by abstract artist František Kupka called Series C I (Plans Miniscules) from 1935 sold for 62 million crowns (around 2.29 million euros) on Sunday, setting a new Czech art auction record. Until now, the record price paid at the domestic art auction was 55.57 million, for which another Kupka`s painting, The Shape of Blue, was sold four years ago. International auction record for Kupka is even higher. Earlier this year, his painting L'Envolée was sold in Sweden for nearly 70 million crowns.
