VIJA CELMINS (B. 1938)
Sky, from Untitled Portfolio
lithograph, on Twinrocker Handmade Rag paper, 1975, signed and dated in pencil, numbered 65/75 (there were also fifteen artist's proofs), published by Cirrus Editions, Los Angeles, with their blindstamp, with full margins, in very good condition
Image: 12 1/2 x 16 1/2 in. (326 x 420 mm.)
Sheet: 16 1/2 x 20 1/4 in. (420 x 515 mm.)

Upper estimate price exceeded by 26 %.

The work Sky, from Untitled Portfolio by Vija Celmins was sold in the The Sale of the Century: An Important Corporate Collection of Prints and Multiples auction at Christies in New York in April this year. It achieved a price of USD 15,120.00 (€ 13,695.65), exceeding the upper end of the estimate range by 26%. 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).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 26 % übertroffen

Die Arbeit Sky, from Untitled Portfolio von Vija Celmins wurde im April diesen Jahres in der Auktion The Sale of the Century: An Important Corporate Collection of Prints and Multiples bei Christies in New York versteigert. Sie erzielte dabei einen Preis von USD 15.120,00 (€ 13.695,65) und übertraf damit das obere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne um 26%. 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).
