A top price for Anish Kapoor

In July 2008 Sothebys in London held the auction Contemporary Art Evening Auction, which included this untitled work by Anish Kapoor. The »bidding war« ended at GBP 1,945,250.00 (€ 2,471,462.02), 30% above the upper estimate. With this result, this work without title is even the most expensive work of art by Anish Kapoor that we have observed at auctions so far.
