Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

In October 2021 Sothebys in Paris held the auction Past/Forward - Part II, which included the work Ancêtres à venir by Wolfgang Paalen. The »bidding war« ended at EUR 17,640.00 18% above the upper estimate. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Wolfgang Paalen achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work „Avertissement I (Peinture)“. in July 2020 with an auction result of EUR 387,500.00.

Oberer Schätzpreis leicht übertroffen

Im Oktober 2021 führte Sothebys in Paris die Auktion Past/Forward - Part II durch, in der auch die Arbeit Ancêtres à venir von Wolfgang Paalen zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von EUR 17.640,00 und damit 18% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Wolfgang Paalen erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit „Avertissement I (Peinture)“. im Juli 2020 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von EUR 387.500,00.
