Auction result well in line with expectations

The work The Driver by Michaël Borremans was sold in the Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Auction auction at Christies in London in June 2019. The estimated price for the artwork was previously given by the auction house with a range of GBP 250,000.00 – 350,000.00, the actual price achieved of GBP 262,500.00 (€ 295,088.93) could thus just exceed the lower estimate. Admittedly, works by Michaël Borremans have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work Girl With Duck in October 2015 with an auction result of GBP 2,045,000.00 (€ 2,860,444.21).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit The Driver von Michaël Borremans wurde im Juni 2019 in der Auktion Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Auction bei Christies in London versteigert. Der Schätzpreis für das Kunstwerk wurde von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit einer Spanne von GBP 250.000,00 – 350.000,00 angegeben, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis von GBP 262.500,00 (€ 295.088,93) konnte den unteren Schätzpreis somit knapp übertreffen. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Michaël Borremans auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit Girl With Duck im Oktober 2015 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 2.045.000,00 (€ 2.860.444,21).
