A top price for František Kaván

When the work Czech garden In Libuň (Zahrada V Libuni) by František Kaván was auctioned at Sothebys in London in June 2011, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - GBP 700.00 but the actual price achieved was more than 25 times as high at GBP 17,500.00 (€ 19,360.50). This high result makes Czech garden In Libuň (Zahrada V Libuni) the most expensive artwork by František Kaván that we have observed at auctions so far.

Ein Spitzenpreis für František Kaván

Als die Arbeit Czech garden In Libuň (Zahrada V Libuni) von František Kaván im Juni 2011 bei Sothebys in London versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – GBP 700,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit GBP 17.500,00 (€ 19.360,50) mehr als 25-mal so hoch. Dieses hohe Ergebnis macht Czech garden In Libuň (Zahrada V Libuni) zu dem teuersten Kunstwerk von František Kaván, das wir bisher bei Auktionen beobachtet haben.
