Success despite crisis

Despite the turbulent times, Lempertz auction house was able to successfully hold its auction of Paintings 15th - 19th Centuries yesterday, with estimates up to € 10,000. As gatherings are currently not possible, customers were only able to bid online or by telephone. The online presence was considerably higher than usual, and, with international participation, featured highlights such as a cartographic painting of the island of Malta which rose from an estimate of € 6,000 to finally bring € 35,000.

The next auction, featuring modern graphics, will take place tomorrow online only, due to the pandemic.
