Despite a disappointment, a good price for Youssef Abdelké

This work of art by Youssef Abdelké could be acquired at Christies in Dubai in October 2007 for an unexpectedly low price. In the International Modern and Contemporary Art auction, the work Figures No.3 changed hands for USD 25,000 (€ 17,280) - missing the lower end of the estimate range of USD 28,000 – 35,000. Despite this disappointing result, Figures No.3 is the most expensive artwork by Youssef Abdelké that we have observed at auction so far.

Trotz Enttäuschung ein guter Preis für Youssef Abdelké

Dieses Kunstwerk von Youssef Abdelké konnte im Oktober 2007 bei Christies in Dubai für einen unerwartet niedrigen Preis ersteigert werden. In der Auktion International Modern and Contemporary Art wechselte die Arbeit Figures No.3 für USD 25.000 (€ 17.280) den Besitzer – und verfehlte damit das untere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne von USD 28.000 – 35.000. Trotz dieses enttäuschenden Ergebnisses ist Figures No.3 das teuerste Kunstwerk von Youssef Abdelké, das wir bisher bei Auktionen beobachtet haben.
