Artwork auctioned at four times the upper estimate price

When the work Two pigs by Leonora Carrington was auctioned at Bonhams in London in November 2021, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - GBP 2,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than four times as high at GBP 9,562.50 (€ 11,227.27). Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Leonora Carrington achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached 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).

Kunstwerk zum Vierfachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit Two pigs von Leonora Carrington im November 2021 bei Bonhams in London versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – GBP 2.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit GBP 9.562,50 (€ 11.227,27) mehr als viermal so hoch. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Leonora Carrington erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit The Garden of Paracelsus im Mai letzten Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 3.256.500,00 (€ 3.034.665,92).
