The highest bid of the auction was placed for the untitled painting (catalogue number 83) by Tadaaki Kuwayama, 1971, coming from a Rhenish private collection. Offering €14,000, a European telephone bidder managed to outbid potential buyers from the USA and Japan. Coming from the same collection, Julio Le Parc‘s „Continuel Luminière Cylindre“ from 1966 (catalogue number 84) went to a Swiss bidder for the hammer price of €6,000. The „Signals“ by TAKIS, designed in 1968 (catalogue number 113), were knocked down for €9,000. Regarding book editions and printed graphics, the works by Andy Warhol were particularly popular, especially the „Giant Size $ 1,57“record sleeve from 1963, which reached the hammer price of €7,200 (catalogue number 119). A plate from the „Service Visage Noir“, designed by Pablo Picasso and Madoura in 1948, went to Prague for €5,600, well above its estimate price of €950-1,000.
