Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Brite Green Store Front, Project by Christo was auctioned at Sothebys in Paris in June this year. The price achieved of EUR 239,400 was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been given by the auction house as EUR 200,000 - 300,000. Admittedly, works by Christo have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work The Umbrellas (Joint project for Japan and USA) in February last year with an auction result of EUR 1,706,500.

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Brite Green Store Front, Project von Christo kam im Juni diesen Jahres bei Sothebys in Paris zur Auktion. Der dabei erzielte Preis von EUR 239.400 lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit EUR 200.000 – 300.000 angegeben worden. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Christo auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit The Umbrellas (Joint project for Japan and USA) im Februar letzten Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von EUR 1.706.500.
