Kandinsky painting sells for $45 million:


A painting by Wassily Kandinsky that spent decades in a Dutch museum after its Jewish owner was murdered in the Holocaust has sold at auction for $44.9 million. “Murnau With Church II” set a record price for the Russian artist at Sotheby’s in London on Wednesday. The brightly colored landscape of a Bavarian village was completed in 1910. The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven returned the painting last year to the descendant­s of German Jewish art collectors Johanna Margarete Stern and Siegbert Samuel Stern.
