Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Fire by Helen Frankenthaler was sold in the 20th Century & Contemporary Art, Evening Sale Part II auction at Phillips in New York in November this year. The price achieved of USD 2,480,000.00 (€ 2,273,560.69) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as USD 2,000,000.00 – 3,000,000.00. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Helen Frankenthaler - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Royal Fireworks, which sold at auction in June 2020 for USD 7,895,300.00 (€ 7,029,917.19).
