A Gerhard Richter painting owned by Eric Clapton has sold for 21.3 million pounds ($34.2 million), setting a new auction record for the German abstract artist.

Sotheby’s auction house says Richter’s “Abstraktes Bild” sold to an anonymous buyer yesterday in London.

The 1994 abstract oil on canvas from Clapton’s collection had been expected to sell for no more than 12-million pounds.

Richter’s previous auction record of 21.9 million pounds was set in May with the sale of his “Abstract Picture.”
