Auction result well in line with expectations

In November this year Christies in London held the auction 20th Century Evening Sale, which included the work Portrait of Cristina, My Sister by Frida Kahlo. The estimated price for the artwork was previously given by the auction house with a range of USD 8,000,000.00 – 12,000,000.00, the actual price achieved of USD 8,230,000.00 (€ 7,544,921.16) could thus just exceed the lower 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).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im November diesen Jahres führte Christies in London die Auktion 20th Century Evening Sale durch, in der auch die Arbeit Portrait of Cristina, My Sister von Frida Kahlo zur Versteigerung kam. Der Schätzpreis für das Kunstwerk wurde von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit einer Spanne von USD 8.000.000,00 – 12.000.000,00 angegeben, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis von USD 8.230.000,00 (€ 7.544.921,16) konnte den unteren Schätzpreis somit knapp übertreffen. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Frida Kahlo auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit Diego y yo im November 2021 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 34.883.000,00 (€ 30.905.466,47).
