A top price for Marcel Louis Baugniet

When the work Composition by Marcel Louis Baugniet was auctioned at Christies in Amsterdam in November 2021, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at - in retrospect quite modest - EUR 6,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than eight times as high at EUR 52,500.00. This high result makes Composition the most expensive artwork by Marcel Louis Baugniet that we have observed at auctions so far.

Ein Spitzenpreis für Marcel Louis Baugniet

Als die Arbeit Composition von Marcel Louis Baugniet im November 2021 bei Christies in Amsterdam versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – EUR 6.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit EUR 52.500,00 mehr als achtmal so hoch. Dieses hohe Ergebnis macht Composition zu dem teuersten Kunstwerk von Marcel Louis Baugniet, das wir bisher bei Auktionen beobachtet haben.
