Gustav Klimt 《 持扇的女子 》成歐洲有史以來最昂貴的畫作

最近的蘇富比倫敦現當代晚間拍賣會見證了一個歷史性時刻,#GustavKlimt 的《 持扇的女子 》(Dame mit Fächer, 1917–18) 以史無前例的 7400 萬英鎊(9430 萬美元)成交,成為歐洲拍賣中,有史以來拍賣價格最高的畫作。此次拍賣總成交額為 8530 萬英鎊(1.08 億美元),包括佣金,超過了 #AlbertoGiacometti 的《 行走的人 I 》保持的先前紀錄,該作品於 2010 年在倫敦蘇富比拍賣行以 1.043 億美元的價格成交。

雖然《 持扇的女子 》的知名度可能不如 Gustav Klimt 的其他著名作品,如《 吻 》( 1907-08 )或《 阿黛爾布洛赫 - 鮑爾肖像 I 》( 1907 ),但它被認為是展示藝術家自發性和創造力的傑作。當 Gustav Klimt 於 1918 年初中風去世時,這幅畫仍然放在他工作室的畫架上。

《 持扇的女子 》的上一次拍賣是在 1994 年於紐約蘇富比拍賣行進行的,當時它以 1160 萬美元的價格成交,只是今天破紀錄價格的十分之一。 此次拍賣證明了 Gustav Klimt 作品的持久吸引力,以及收藏家對現當代藝術的持續需求。

The recent Sotheby's London Modern and Contemporary Evening Auction saw a historic moment, as Gustav Klimt's Dame mit Fächer (Lady with a Fan) sold for an unprecedented £74 million ($94.3 million), making it the highest-priced painting ever to be sold at auction in Europe. The auction garnered a total of £85.3 million ($108 million), including fees, surpassing the former record held by Alberto Giacometti's Walking Man I, which sold for $104.3 million at Sotheby's London in 2010.

While Lady with a Fan may not be as well-known as Klimt's other famous works, such as The Kiss (1907–08) or Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I (1907), it is considered a masterpiece that displays the artist's spontaneity and formal prowess. Interestingly, the painting was still on an easel in Klimt's studio when he passed away from a stroke in early 1918.

It's worth noting that the previous auction of Lady with a Fan occurred at Sotheby's New York in 1994, where it sold for $11.6 million, a fraction of its record-breaking price today. This sale is a testament to the enduring appeal of Klimt's work, and the continued demand for modern and contemporary art among collectors.
