We would like to thank everyone who participated in our springtime Garden Auction for contributing to its irreproducible atmosphere. This was the most successful auction in our entire history, with the auction realizing a record-breaking total of CZK 92,471,760. The most awaited result was the record for Mikuláš Medek’s painting Action I (Egg), which sold for CZK 57 million.

Other successful sales included Josef Čapek’s painting At the Bar with a realized price of CZK 9,548,000 and French artist Gustav Loiseau’s painting Cliffs in Étretat, which fetched CZK 3,596,000. Impressive prices were realized for Vincenc Makovský’s bust of Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk (CZK 310,000) and a cubist vase by Vlastislav Hofman, which soared to a new record for the artist at CZK 508,400.

The surprise of the auction was the active bidding for works by Jan Václav Mrkvička, whose two lots skyrocketed from starting prices of CZK 10,000 to CZK 235,600 and CZK 682,000.

(All prices listed include 24% buyer’s premium).
