Artwork auctioned at five times the upper estimate price

The work Apollo in the Temple of Michael Rat by Leonora Carrington was worth USD 378,000.00 (€ 340,755.43) to a buyer in March last year. This price was achieved in the auction Latin American Art at Christies in New York and exceeded the previously set upper estimate of USD 70,000.00 many times over. Admittedly, works by Leonora Carrington have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work The Garden of Paracelsus in May last year with an auction result of USD 3,256,500.00 (€ 3,034,665.92).
