london - A painting by German expressionist Max Beckmann (1884-1950) converted 40 million euros to an auction in London. The proceeds were a record at an auction for a work by a German expressionist.

It is about Hölle der Vögel's painting (Hel van de Vogels), which Beckmann began in exile in Amsterdam in 1938, and later finished in Paris in that year. On the canvas are chopped figures and birds visible in bright colors that symbolize national socialism and its victims.
