5. Dec - 5. Dec 2020
Estimate: 150.000 - 200.000 EUR
Price realised: 824.000 EUR
Theodor Schempp & Co., New York | Julien Bobbe, Indianapolis (acquis auprès de celle-ci en 1948) | Collection Monsieur et Madame Robert Hensel, États-Unis | Don de Madame Hensel à l'Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields, en mémoire de Monsieur Robert Hensel en 1984

Artwork auctioned at four times the upper estimate price

The work Le chemin difficile by Nicolas de Staël was worth EUR 824,000.00 to a buyer in December 2020. This price was achieved in the auction Post War & Contemporary Art at Christies in Paris and exceeded the previously set upper estimate of EUR 200,000.00 many times over. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Nicolas de Staël achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Parc des Princes (Les grands footballeurs) in October 2019 with an auction result of EUR 20,000,000.00.

Kunstwerk zum Vierfachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Die Arbeit Le chemin difficile von Nicolas de Staël war einem Käufer im Dezember 2020 EUR 824.000,00 wert. Dieser Preise wurde in der Auktion Post War & Contemporary Art bei Christies in Paris erzielt und übertraf den zuvor angesetzten oberen Schätzpreis von EUR 200.000,00 um ein Vielfaches. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Nicolas de Staël erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Parc des Princes (Les grands footballeurs) im Oktober 2019 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von EUR 20.000.000,00.
