IKB pigment and synthetic resin on plaster cast
23 1/4 x 7/1/8 x 5 1/8 in.

Upper estimate price exceeded by 79 %.

This artwork by Yves Klein achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in London in June this year. In the Art contemporain - Vente du jour auction, the work L'Esclave mourant d'après Michel-Ange sold for EUR 107,100.00 - well above the upper estimate of EUR 60,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Yves Klein achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Anthropométrie de l’époque bleue, (ANT 124) (Anthropometry of the Blue Period), (ANT 124)) in June last year with an auction result of GBP 27,197,000.00 (€ 31,595,177.57).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 79 % übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Yves Klein erzielte im Juni diesen Jahres bei Christies in London einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Art contemporain - Vente du jour wurde die Arbeit L'Esclave mourant d'après Michel-Ange für EUR 107.100,00 versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von EUR 60.000,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Yves Klein erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Anthropométrie de l’époque bleue, (ANT 124) (Anthropometry of the Blue Period), (ANT 124)) im Juni letzten Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 27.197.000,00 (€ 31.595.177,57).
