Pierre Bourot, France | Private collection, France | Acquired from the above by the present owner

Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by František Kupka achieved an unexpectedly high price at Sothebys in Zurich in June last year. In the Modern & Contemporary Auction auction, the work Composition sold for CHF 35,280.00 (€ 35,286.74) - well above the upper estimate of CHF 15,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by František Kupka achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Le Jaillissement II (Tryskání II) in March 2021 with an auction result of GBP 7,551,600.00 (€ 8,871,184.71).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von František Kupka erzielte im Juni letzten Jahres bei Sothebys in Zürich einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Modern & Contemporary Auction wurde die Arbeit Composition für CHF 35.280,00 (€ 35.286,74) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von CHF 15.000,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von František Kupka erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Le Jaillissement II (Tryskání II) im März 2021 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 7.551.600,00 (€ 8.871.184,71).
