Louise Bourgeois

Femme

Found at Phillips, New York Auction
20th Century & Contemporary Art Day Sale, Morning Session, Lot 162
19. May - 19. May 2022
Estimate: 150.000 - 200.000 USD
Price realised: 352.800 USD
incised with the artist's initials "LB" on the underside
black marble
4 3/4 x 15 x 7 in. (12.1 x 38.1 x 17.8 cm)
Executed in 2005.

Upper estimate price exceeded by 76 %.

This artwork by Louise Bourgeois achieved an unexpectedly high price at Phillips in New York in May last year. In the 20th Century & Contemporary Art Day Sale, Morning Session auction, the work Femme sold for USD 352,800.00 (€ 328,767.12) - well above the upper estimate of USD 200,000.00. 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).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 76 % übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Louise Bourgeois erzielte im Mai letzten Jahres bei Phillips in New York einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion 20th Century & Contemporary Art Day Sale, Morning Session wurde die Arbeit Femme für USD 352.800,00 (€ 328.767,12) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von USD 200.000,00. 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).
