Former Czech tennis star Ivan Lendl has sold his collection of posters by Alfons Mucha to a Czech businessman, Richard Fuxa, the daily Mladá Fronta Dnes reported on Tuesday. The deal was already prepared before the exhibition last year of the Mucha posters in Prague’s Obecní Dům. According to the paper the selling price for the collection came to 3.5 million dollars, around 70 million crowns, though that figure was not confirmed by Fuxa. The new owner said that he had plans to exhibit the collection outside the Czech Republic and was also planning to find a permanent home for it but refused to give details. The exhibition of Lendl’s Mucha posters was a major hit last year with 200,000 visitors.
