VIJA CELMINS (B. 1938) Night Sky woodcut, 1997, on Kozo-Gampi paper chine collé to Fabriano Tiepolo paper, signed and dated in pencil, inscribed Trial Proof , a proof before the edition of thirty (there were also twenty artist’s proofs), published by The Grenfell Press, New York Block 220 x 245 mm. Sheet 446 x 317 mm.

Auction result well in line with expectations

In March this year Christies in London held the auction Contemporary Edition: London, which included the work Night Sky by Vija Celmins. The estimated price for the artwork was previously given by the auction house with a range of GBP 10,000.00 – 15,000.00, the actual price achieved of GBP 10,080.00 (€ 11,467.95) could thus just exceed the lower estimate. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Vija Celmins achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Untitled (Ocean) in June 2021 with an auction result of USD 7,748,000.00 (€ 6,539,500.34).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im März diesen Jahres führte Christies in London die Auktion Contemporary Edition: London durch, in der auch die Arbeit Night Sky von Vija Celmins zur Versteigerung kam. Der Schätzpreis für das Kunstwerk wurde von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit einer Spanne von GBP 10.000,00 – 15.000,00 angegeben, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis von GBP 10.080,00 (€ 11.467,95) konnte den unteren Schätzpreis somit knapp übertreffen. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Vija Celmins erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Untitled (Ocean) im Juni 2021 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 7.748.000,00 (€ 6.539.500,34).
