Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

The work Ascension by Albert Oehlen was sold in the 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale auction at Phillips in London in March this year. Here, the upper estimate of GBP 1,000,000.00 was slightly exceeded - the artwork found a new owner for GBP 1,076,500.00 (€ 1,224,726.68). However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Albert Oehlen - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Stier mit loch (Bull with hole), which sold at auction in October 2018 for GBP 3,608,750.00 (€ 4,069,556.68).
