Executed in 2002.

Upper estimate price exceeded by 58%

In June this year Phillips in London held the auction 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale, which included the work Couple by Louise Bourgeois. The »bidding war« ended at GBP 869,500 (€ 1,010,112), 58% above the upper estimate. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Louise Bourgeois achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Spider in May 2019 with an auction result of USD 32,055,000 (€ 28,751,458).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 58% übertroffen

Im Juni diesen Jahres führte Phillips in London die Auktion 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale durch, in der auch die Arbeit Couple von Louise Bourgeois zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von GBP 869.500 (€ 1.010.112) und damit 58% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Louise Bourgeois erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Spider im Mai 2019 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 32.055.000 (€ 28.751.458).
