The work Monochrome bleu sans titre, (IKB 102) by Yves Klein was auctioned at Christies in New York in October this year. It achieved a price of EUR 2,823,000.00 exceeding the upper end of the estimate range by 41 %. 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 41 % übertroffen

Die Arbeit Monochrome bleu sans titre, (IKB 102) von Yves Klein kam im Oktober diesen Jahres bei Christies in New York zur Auktion. Sie erzielte dabei einen Preis von EUR 2.823.000,00 und übertraf damit das obere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne um 41 %. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Yves Klein erzielen.
