Right in the beginning we were already pleased with the highest hammer prices of this auction. The two 'Concetto spaziale - rondo' by Lucio Fontana (lots 612 and 613) fetched EUR 12,000 and EUR 14,000, respectively. Henry Moore's 'Three Way Ring' (lot 623) was sold for EUR 19,000 - the highest hammer price of our art auction of the first half of the year. Many other porcelain works from Walther Stürmer's estate went under the hammer and changed hands for pleasant prices. In contrast to the plain white porcelain works at the beginning of the auction stood the works by Niki de Saint Phalle, Andy Warhol, Mel Ramos and LA II. The 'Nana de Berlin' (lot 741) received EUR 6,000, the yellow eye-catcher by the artist LA II EUR 3,000. The poster 'The Rolling Stones - Love you Live' signed by Warhol and Mick Jagger was sold far above its estimate, and fetched EUR 3,200. The Collectors’ Edition Arakis for Taschen Verlag (lot 639) also exceeded its estimate with a hammer price of EUR 1,200. Picasso's ceramic 'Visage' (lot 721) also received double its upper estimate, EUR 2,400.

Until 6 August 2021, you can still acquire further beautiful objects in our post-auction sale. We are already looking forward to the next auction of Modern and Contemporary Art on 9 December 2021.
