In December 2008 Christies in London held the auction Christie's Interiors, which included the work Face and glass by Roy Adzak. The »bidding war« ended at GBP 1,250.00 (€ 1,312.86), 56% above the upper estimate. Admittedly, works by Roy Adzak have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work Sans titre (Huit profils) in October 2021 with an auction result of EUR 12,750.00.

Oberer Schätzpreis um 56 % übertroffen

Im Dezember 2008 führte Christies in London die Auktion Christie's Interiors durch, in der auch die Arbeit Face and glass von Roy Adzak zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von GBP 1.250,00 (€ 1.312,86) und damit 56% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Roy Adzak auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit Sans titre (Huit profils) im Oktober 2021 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von EUR 12.750,00.
