This artwork by Christian Zervos achieved an unexpectedly high price at Sothebys in London in March 2021.

Dieses Kunstwerk von Christian Zervos erzielte im März 2021 bei Sothebys in London einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Impressionist & Modern Art Day Sale Including Works from the Collection of Marina Picasso wurde die Arbeit The complete set of 34 volumes (numbered 1-33, volume II in 2 parts), numerous plates and illustrations, uniformly bound in half leather over beige buckram, some volumes retaining original printed wrappers, published by Éditions Cahiers d'Art, Paris, 1949 für GBP 40.320,00 (€ 47.365,61) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von GBP 15.000,00.
