This artwork by Mark Rothko achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in New York in May 2019. In the Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sale auction, the work No. 16/No. 12 (Mauve Intersection) sold for USD 5,382,500 (€ 4,827,787) - well above the upper estimate of USD 3,000,000. 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).
