Auctionata – Post-War & Contemporary Art Auction Analysis

July 25, 2015

The 284. Auctionata auction took place on Wednesday, July 22 2015, in Berlin. One day before, we wrote how Auctionata became the biggest auction house in Germany. This time, we write an auction analysis of the Post-War & Contemporary Art that, unfortunately, didn’t achieve some impressive results. Out of total number of 172 lots put on a bid, only 47 of them were sold, making that only 27.3 percent of sold lots. Maximum hammer price was achieved at $14.562 while the average hammer price was $2.498. Total of $117.421 was spent on the sold lots, while the sum of estimated value was $289.422.

Highlights of the Post-War & Contemporary Art at Auctionata

Post-War & Contemporary Art auction at Auctionata saw some quite amazing pieces of contemporary art. One of the highlights of the auction was Anna Tessenow’s Woman. This painting was painted in 2013, and the work is exemplary for the extraordinary oeuvre of this prominent representative of the Neuen Leipziger Schule. Unfortunately, it was not sold. Another auction highlight was Chris Burden’s Two Minute Airplane. It was sold for $3.514.
