This artwork by Magdalena Abakanowicz achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in London in October 2020. In the Post-War & Contemporary Art Day Sale auction, the work Brun sold for GBP 55,000.00 (€ 61,072.81) - well above the upper estimate of GBP 25,000.00. Admittedly, works by Magdalena Abakanowicz have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work Flock (12 Standing Figures, from 'Ragazzi' Cycle) in November 2017 with an auction result of USD 480,500.00 (€ 403,849.39).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Magdalena Abakanowicz erzielte im Oktober 2020 bei Christies in London einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Post-War & Contemporary Art Day Sale wurde die Arbeit Brun für GBP 55.000,00 (€ 61.072,81) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von GBP 25.000,00.
