František Kupka

La Voie Du Silence II

Found at Christies, London (Online Auction)
Prints and Multiples, Lot 177
14. Sep - 28. Sep 2022
Estimate: 3.000 - 5.000 GBP
Price realised: 23.940 GBP
FRANTIŠEK KUPKA (1871-1957) La voie du silence II aquatint in colours, 1903, on wove paper, initialed K. and inscribed état de gravure, a proof aside from the edition of unknown size Plate 346 x 348 mm. Sheet 510 x 500 mm.

Artwork auctioned at four times the upper estimate price

When the work La Voie Du Silence II by František Kupka was auctioned at Christies in London in September last year, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - GBP 5,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than four times as high at GBP 23,940.00 (€ 27,246.03). 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).

Kunstwerk zum Vierfachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit La Voie Du Silence II von František Kupka im September 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 5.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit GBP 23.940,00 (€ 27.246,03) mehr als viermal so hoch. 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).
