Cristina Banban

Mel II

Found at Christies, London (Online Auction)
First Open: Post-War and Contemporary Art Online, Lot 53
21. Jun - 5. Jul 2022
Estimate: 2.000 - 3.000 GBP
Price realised: 18.900 GBP
CRISTINA BANBAN (B. 1987) Mel II signed with the artist's initials 'CB' (lower right); signed and dated 'CRISTINA BANBAN 2018' (on the reverse) charcoal on paper 24 x 16 7 ⁄ 8 in. (61 x 42.8cm.) Executed in 2018

Artwork auctioned at six times the upper estimate price

When the work Mel II by Cristina BanBan was auctioned at Christies in London in July last year, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - GBP 3,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than six times as high at GBP 18,900.00 (€ 22,569.96). Admittedly, works by Cristina BanBan have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work La Fatiga Que Me Das (You Exhaust Me) in February this year with an auction result of GBP 163,800.00 (€ 186,835.82).

Kunstwerk zum Sechsfachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit Mel II von Cristina BanBan im Juli letzten Jahres bei Christies in London versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – GBP 3.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit GBP 18.900,00 (€ 22.569,96) mehr als sechsmal so hoch. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Cristina BanBan auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit La Fatiga Que Me Das (You Exhaust Me) im Februar diesen Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 163.800,00 (€ 186.835,82).
