Auction result well in line with expectations

In October 2019 Christies in London held the auction Middle Eastern, Modern and Contemporary Art, which included the work Ehsan Crying by Youssef Nabil. The price achieved of GBP 25,000.00 (€ 28,998.21) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as GBP 20,000.00 – 30,000.00. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Youssef Nabil - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Maelema- Fifi Abdo, which sold at auction in October 2010 for USD 91,300.00 (€ 65,711.82).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im Oktober 2019 führte Christies in London die Auktion Middle Eastern, Modern and Contemporary Art durch, in der auch die Arbeit Ehsan Crying von Youssef Nabil zur Versteigerung kam. Der dabei erzielte Preis von GBP 25.000,00 (€ 28.998,21) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit GBP 20.000,00 – 30.000,00 angegeben worden. Für andere Arbeiten von Youssef Nabil mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Maelema- Fifi Abdo beobachtet, die im Oktober 2010 für USD 91.300,00 (€ 65.711,82) versteigert wurde.
