A Painting by Wassily Kandinsky Was Finally Recognized and Sold at the Auction
A draw, painted by a Russian artist with a watercolor, was considered lost forever. But now, 70 years after, it was officially recognized and sold for an amount of 1.4 million dollars.
The painting called Curved Ends was painted by Wassily Kandinsky in 1927. Then, an expressionist was working as a teacher at the German art school.
When in 1949, it was registered as sold, nobody was unable to define its location. The only proof of the existence of the work of art was a small sketch of it in the list of his works.
Finally, the auction house located in Munich announced that Kandinsky’s creation was found on the estate of a private German collector in May.
The Ketterer Kunst auction house is very happy they were managed to identify the painting 7 decades after its creation. Despite many experts studied this work, its exact appearance and location remained a mystery. And on Saturday, the painting was purchased by a collector from Berlin at an auction.
Kandinsky was famous for his abstract painting, using vibrant colors and geometric shapes.
