Painted on 2 March 1962

Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Tête bleue by Joan Miró was sold in the Impressionist and Modern Art Day and Works on Paper Sale auction at Christies in London in June this year. The price achieved of GBP 252,000 (€ 292,752) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been given by the auction house as GBP 200,000 - 300,000. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Joan Miró achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Peinture (Étoile Bleue) in June 2012 with an auction result of GBP 23,561,250 (€ 29,174,437).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Tête bleue von Joan Miró wurde im Juni diesen Jahres in der Auktion Impressionist and Modern Art Day and Works on Paper Sale bei Christies in London versteigert. Der dabei erzielte Preis von GBP 252.000 (€ 292.752) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit GBP 200.000 – 300.000 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Joan Miró erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Peinture (Étoile Bleue) im Juni 2012 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 23.561.250 (€ 29.174.437).
