Artwork auctioned at three times the upper estimate price

When the work Composition - 1973 by Wassily Kandinsky was auctioned at Artcurial in Paris in June this year, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at - in retrospect quite modest - EUR 300.00 but the actual price achieved was more than three times as high at EUR 1,050.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Wassily Kandinsky achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Bild Mit Weissen Linien (Painting With White Lines)   in June 2017 with an auction result of GBP 33,008,750.00 (€ 37,590,807.66).

Kunstwerk zum Dreifachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit Composition - 1973 von Wassily Kandinsky im Juni diesen Jahres bei Artcurial in Paris versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – EUR 300,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit EUR 1.050,00 mehr als dreimal so hoch. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Wassily Kandinsky erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Bild Mit Weissen Linien (Painting With White Lines)   im Juni 2017 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 33.008.750,00 (€ 37.590.807,66).
