A top price for Hervé van der Straeten

When the work 'Lustre' Chandelier by Hervé van der Straeten was auctioned at Sothebys in London in January 2021, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - GBP 15,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than three times as high at GBP 47,880.00 (€ 54,145.63). This high result makes 'Lustre' Chandelier the most expensive artwork by Hervé van der Straeten that we have observed at auctions so far.

Ein Spitzenpreis für Hervé van der Straeten

Als die Arbeit 'Lustre' Chandelier von Hervé van der Straeten im Januar 2021 bei Sothebys in London versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – GBP 15.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit GBP 47.880,00 (€ 54.145,63) mehr als dreimal so hoch. Dieses hohe Ergebnis macht 'Lustre' Chandelier zu dem teuersten Kunstwerk von Hervé van der Straeten, das wir bisher bei Auktionen beobachtet haben.
