Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

In February 2007 Sothebys in London held the auction Modern and Contemporary Russian Art, which included the work Vliublennye The Lovers by Lev Tabenkin. The »bidding war« ended at GBP 21,600.00 (€ 32,021.22), 20% above the upper estimate. Admittedly, works by Lev Tabenkin have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work Jazz Orchestra in June 2008 with an auction result of GBP 117,650.00 (€ 148,713.54).

Oberer Schätzpreis leicht übertroffen

Im Februar 2007 führte Sothebys in London die Auktion Modern and Contemporary Russian Art durch, in der auch die Arbeit Vliublennye The Lovers von Lev Tabenkin zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von GBP 21.600,00 (€ 32.021,22) und damit 20% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Lev Tabenkin auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit Jazz Orchestra im Juni 2008 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 117.650,00 (€ 148.713,54).
