The 87th auction of the KODL Gallery has historically become the most successful in the Czech Republic

Bohumil Kubišta's painting sold for more than 123 million


Two extraordinary records were broken at the 87th auction of the KODL Gallery. The most expensive painting sold in the history of the Czech Republic was Bohumil Kubišta's "Old Prague Motif", auctioned for more than 123 million crowns. The total starting amount of 150 million was increased almost threefold and for the first time the limit of 440 million reached in one auction was exceeded. This is the most successful auction in the history of the Czech Republic.



The 87th Auction Exhibition of works of art takes place from 25th April and presents a selected collection of fine art in a wide range of the 19th and 20th centuries, with an overlap into contemporary art.


The nineteenth century is represented primarily by the great names of Czech coryphae, led by Mikoláš Aleš, Alfons Mucha, Antonín Chittussi, Václav Radimský and Antonín Slavíček.


The twentieth century will present gems not only of Czech modernism. Josef Čapek is represented by several works, and works by Emil Filla, Václav Špála, František Kupka and Josef Šíma are also present.


This year's spring charity auction, to which a number of contemporary artists have contributed their works, is dedicated to the non-profit organization Centrum Paraple.


The auction itself takes place on 29th May from 12:00 in Prague's Žofín.


The bidders also have the opportunity to bid online on the auction portal Artslimit.com.


Guided tours (since May 3): every Tuesday and Thursday from 4pm.
