Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Untitled (Divided Rectangle) by Vija Celmins was sold in the 21st Century Evening Sale auction at Christies in New York in May this year. The estimated price for the artwork was previously given by the auction house with a range of USD 2,000,000.00 – 3,000,000.00, the actual price achieved of USD 2,228,000.00 (€ 2,091,233.34) could thus just exceed the lower estimate. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Vija Celmins - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Untitled (Ocean), which sold at auction in June 2021 for USD 7,748,000.00 (€ 6,539,500.34).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Untitled (Divided Rectangle) von Vija Celmins wurde im Mai diesen Jahres in der Auktion 21st Century Evening Sale bei Christies in New York versteigert. Der Schätzpreis für das Kunstwerk wurde von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit einer Spanne von USD 2.000.000,00 – 3.000.000,00 angegeben, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis von USD 2.228.000,00 (€ 2.091.233,34) konnte den unteren Schätzpreis somit knapp übertreffen. Für andere Arbeiten von Vija Celmins mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Untitled (Ocean) beobachtet, die im Juni 2021 für USD 7.748.000,00 (€ 6.539.500,34) versteigert wurde.
