CHRISTO (1935-2020)
Whitney Museum of American Art, Packed, Project for New York, from (Some) Not Realized Projects
lithograph in colors with collage of fabric, twine, thread, staples and transparent polyethylene, on Arjomari paper affixed to mat board (as issued), 1971, signed in pencil, numbered 53⁄100 (there were also ten artist's proofs), published by Landfall Press, Chicago, with their blindstamp, the full sheet, in generally good condition, framed
Sheet: 27 7⁄8 x 21 3⁄4 in. (705 x 552 mm.)

Upper estimate price exceeded by 76%

This artwork by Christo achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in New York in March this year. In the Contemporary Edition auction, the work Whitney Museum of American Art, Packed, Project for New York, from (Some) Not Realized Projects sold for USD 8,820 (€ 7,951) - well above the upper estimate of USD 5,000. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Christo achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work The Umbrellas (Joint project for Japan and USA) in February last year with an auction result of EUR 1,706,500.

Oberer Schätzpreis um 76% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Christo erzielte im März diesen Jahres bei Christies in New York einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Contemporary Edition wurde die Arbeit Whitney Museum of American Art, Packed, Project for New York, from (Some) Not Realized Projects für USD 8.820 (€ 7.951) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von USD 5.000. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Christo erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit The Umbrellas (Joint project for Japan and USA) im Februar letzten Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von EUR 1.706.500.
