LOUISE BOURGEOIS (1911-2010)
Janus in Leather Jacket
incised with the artist’s initials, number and date ‘L.B. 4⁄6 92’ and stamped with the Modern Art Foundry mark ‘MAF’ (on the underside)
bronze
11 1⁄8 x 23 x 5 3⁄8in. (28.5 x 53.5 x 13.5cm.)
Conceived in 1968 and cast in 1992, this work is number four from an edition of six plus one artist’s proof

Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

In June this year Christies in London held the auction 20th/21st Century: London Evening Sale, which included the work Janus in Leather Jacket by Louise Bourgeois. Here, the upper estimate of GBP 350,000 was slightly exceeded - the artwork found a new owner for GBP 352,800 (€ 409,853). 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 leicht übertroffen

Im Juni diesen Jahres führte Christies in London die Auktion 20th/21st Century: London Evening Sale durch, in der auch die Arbeit Janus in Leather Jacket von Louise Bourgeois zur Versteigerung kam. Dabei wurde der obere Schätzpreis von GBP 350.000 leicht übertroffen – das Kunstwerk fand für GBP 352.800 (€ 409.853) einen neuen Besitzer. 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).
