Auction result well in line with expectations

In February 2020 Sothebys in London held the auction Contemporary Art Evening Auction, which included the work Relief Avec Deux Collines (Relief With Two Hills)  by Magdalena Abakanowicz. The estimated price for the artwork was previously given by the auction house with a range of GBP 50,000.00 – 70,000.00, the actual price achieved of GBP 52,500.00 (€ 60,847.62) could thus just exceed the lower estimate. 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).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im Februar 2020 führte Sothebys in London die Auktion Contemporary Art Evening Auction durch, in der auch die Arbeit Relief Avec Deux Collines (Relief With Two Hills)  von Magdalena Abakanowicz zur Versteigerung kam. Der Schätzpreis für das Kunstwerk wurde von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit einer Spanne von GBP 50.000,00 – 70.000,00 angegeben, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis von GBP 52.500,00 (€ 60.847,62) konnte den unteren Schätzpreis somit knapp übertreffen. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Magdalena Abakanowicz auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit Flock (12 Standing Figures, from 'Ragazzi' Cycle) im November 2017 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 480.500,00 (€ 403.849,39).
