BERLIN, June 28, 2023 

Last Friday (23.06.2023), the auction house Jeschke Jádi was able to achieve a worldwide record auction result in its auction of Modern and Contemporary Art with the modernist bronze head of the German artist Hede Bühl. In a bidding battle that lasted several minutes, an American bidder prevailed over four German private collectors. The hammer fell at 21.000€. With buyer’s premium, a total result of over 27.000€ was achieved.

Consigned from a private collection in northern Germany, the bronze object (17.5 x 14.5 x 21 cm) explored the main artistic theme of German sculptor Hede Bühl. She studied with Sepp Mages and Joseph Beuys at the Düsseldorf Art Academy in 1958-63, and at times worked in Ewald Mataré’s studio. She has received numerous awards for her work, which has been consistently developed over decades, including the Käthe Kollwitz Prize of the Academy of Arts in Berlin in 2007. Her sculptures are represented in private and public collections, including the Berlin National Gallery, the Kunststiftung NRW, Düsseldorf, and the Von der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal.

Jeschke Jádi Auctions thus achieved a third world record in a row for an edition object in the field of Post War Art, after Brice Marden (2021), Gerhard Richter (2022), and now with Hede Bühl (2023). 

Other notable knockdowns in the auction were the portfolio work “Die Oberfläche” with prints by Josef Albers, which went for €10,000, and a mixed media work by Clemens Gröszer, which went to an East German private collection at €9,000. Norbert Bisky‘s “Springer,” a small watercolor occasional drawing measuring only 18 x 12.7 cm, went to a West German private collector and climbed to double the estimate at €5,000.
