Record bids expected at Polish art auction

20.10.2021 22:00
One of Poland's most highly anticipated art auctions is set to take place in Warsaw on Thursday, with a collection of sculptures by acclaimed artist Magdalena Abakanowicz going under the hammer and expected to fetch a record price.

Abakanowicz's set of 50 headless figures, collectively entitled Crowd III, is estimated to be worth anywhere between PLN 12 million and PLN 18 million.

No item has fetched such a high price at a Polish art auction so far.

In 2019, Abakanowicz's Caminando installation set a record on the Polish art market, selling for just over PLN 8 million (EUR 1.75 million, USD 2 million) at the Desa Unicum auction house in the Polish capital.

Danuta Isler spoke to Urszula Kaszewska from the education department at the Centre of Polish Sculture in Orońsko, south of Warsaw.
