The work Une Histoire De Nombres (A Story Of Numbers) by Mario Merz was auctioned at Christies in Amsterdam in May 2021. It achieved a price of EUR 11,875.00 exceeding the upper end of the estimate range by 48 %. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Mario Merz achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Piccolo caimano in October 2015 with an auction result of GBP 962,500.00 (€ 1,346,297.09).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 48 % übertroffen

Die Arbeit Une Histoire De Nombres (A Story Of Numbers) von Mario Merz kam im Mai 2021 bei Christies in Amsterdam zur Auktion. Sie erzielte dabei einen Preis von EUR 11.875,00 und übertraf damit das obere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne um 48 %. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Mario Merz erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Piccolo caimano im Oktober 2015 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 962.500,00 (€ 1.346.297,09).
