The work Portrait of a Lady in White by Frida Kahlo was sold in the Latin American Art auction at Christies in New York in November 2019. The »bidding war« ended at USD 5,836,500.00 (€ 5,296,760.14), 17% above the upper estimate. Admittedly, works by Frida Kahlo have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work Diego y yo in November 2021 with an auction result of USD 34,883,000.00 (€ 30,905,466.47).

Oberer Schätzpreis leicht übertroffen

Die Arbeit Portrait of a Lady in White von Frida Kahlo wurde im November 2019 in der Auktion Latin American Art bei Christies in New York versteigert. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von USD 5.836.500,00 (€ 5.296.760,14) und damit 17% über dem oberen Schätzpreis.
