LOUISE BOURGEOIS (1911-2010) "Ex Libris", bookplate from the illustrated book, Recueil des Secrets de Louyse Bourgeois , deluxe edition offset lithograph in colours with an embossed plate mark, 2005, on wove paper, initialed and numbered 28/40 in pencil, from the deluxe edition of the book (there were also 15 artist's proofs of the deluxe book, and a trade edition of 300), published by Salon Verlag, Cologne, lacking the book Image 100 x 68 mm. Sheet 118 x 81 mm.

Auction result misses estimated price range

In March this year a collector was able to acquire the work "Ex Libris", bookplate from the illustrated book, Recueil des Secrets de Louyse Bourgeois, deluxe edition by Louise Bourgeois for GBP 630.00 (€ 716.75). This price was achieved in the auction Contemporary Edition: London at Christies in London and was even below the estimate range of GBP 800.00 – 1,200.00 set by the auction house. 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 32,055,000.00 (€ 28,751,457.53).

Auktionsergebnis verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Im März diesen Jahres konnte ein Sammler die Arbeit "Ex Libris", bookplate from the illustrated book, Recueil des Secrets de Louyse Bourgeois, deluxe edition von Louise Bourgeois für GBP 630,00 (€ 716,75) erwerben. Dieser Preis wurde in der Auktion Contemporary Edition: London bei Christies in London erzielt und lag noch unterhalb der von dem Auktionshaus angesetzten Schätzpreisspanne von GBP 800,00 – 1.200,00. 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 32.055.000,00 (€ 28.751.457,53).
