Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by George Condo achieved an unexpectedly high price at Bonhams in London in December this year. In the Post-War & Contemporary Art Online Sale auction, the work The Frenchman sold for GBP 40,960.00 (€ 47,184.35) - well above the upper estimate of GBP 18,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by George Condo achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Nude and Forms in May 2018 with an auction result of USD 6,162,500.00 (€ 5,280,634.10).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von George Condo erzielte im Dezember diesen Jahres bei Bonhams in London einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Post-War & Contemporary Art Online Sale wurde die Arbeit The Frenchman für GBP 40.960,00 (€ 47.184,35) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von GBP 18.000,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von George Condo erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Nude and Forms im Mai 2018 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 6.162.500,00 (€ 5.280.634,10).
