Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Le Trani Episode by Louise Bourgeois was sold in the Dialogues: Modern and Contemporary Art auction at Christies in London in July 2020. It changed hands for a price of GBP 187,500.00 (€ 209,141.97) achieving a result in the upper range of the estimate price range of GBP 150,000.00 – 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).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Le Trani Episode von Louise Bourgeois wurde im Juli 2020 in der Auktion Dialogues: Modern and Contemporary Art bei Christies in London versteigert. Dabei wechselte sie für einen Preis von GBP 187.500,00 (€ 209.141,97) den Besitzer und erzielte damit ein Ergebnis im oberen Bereich der Schätzpreisspanne von GBP 150.000,00 – 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).
