Katya Kazakina on Bloomberg takes the opportunity of Andrew Hall’s exhibition of 200 works by Joseph Beuys at Mary Boone Gallery to record the market high-water marks for the influential artist.
At auction, the top price for a Beuys work was for a bronze sculpture titled “Corsett” that fetched $1.05 million at Sotheby’s New York in 2008. His priciest sled took in $156,000 at Phillips de Pury, New York, in 2007. The most expensive felt suit sold for 62,000 euros at Lempertz, a German auction house, which was $91,381.80 at the exchange rate of the sale date, Nov. 29, 2007.
