Other artists featured including a new record for Wassilly Kandinsky whose work titled ” Rigide et Courbe”  sold for $23, 319, 500.

Another world record was set for the oldest living painter included in the auction, Carmen Herrera, the Cuban born painter who is 101 years of age. She had an image titled ” Cerulean” that went for $970,000.

Great to see Carmen Herrera is having the zenith of her career at the age of 101. Grandma Moses would be impressed!
