Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Green, Blue, Green by Mark Rothko was auctioned at Sothebys in New York in June 2020. The price achieved of USD 8,350,900 (€ 7,435,580) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been given by the auction house as USD 7,000,000 - 10,000,000. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Mark Rothko achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work No. 10 in May 2015 with an auction result of USD 81,925,000 (€ 74,517,919).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Green, Blue, Green von Mark Rothko kam im Juni 2020 bei Sothebys in New York zur Auktion. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 8.350.900 (€ 7.435.580) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 7.000.000 – 10.000.000 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Mark Rothko erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit No. 10 im Mai 2015 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 81.925.000 (€ 74.517.919).
