Sensational result for Bukowskis International Fine Art auction, Modern Art + Design


Iconic work by Otto G Carlsund sells for SEK 9,187,500


The Nordic region's leading Modern Art + Design auction resulted in record prices and several ”White Glove Sales” for various prestigious collections. Art and Design sold for a total final price of SEK 107 million; the best auction ever at Bukowskis for Modern Art and Design. A result that strengthens Bukowski's position as the Nordic region's leading auction house. Ahead of the season's closing Fine Art auction; the Important Winter Sale, Bukowskis has already achieved a season total of SEK 166 million.


– The auction resulted in several historically significant works that sold at high final prices. “It is enjoyable to see how we touch on Bukowski's previous world record for a work by Otto G Carlsund when ”Lokomobil” reached a final price of SEK 9,187,500” says Lena Rydén, Head of Art, specialist in Modern Art.



› Gösta Adrian-Nilsson, ”Sjömän”, sold for a final price of SEK 6 125 000


Otto G Carlsund's early work ”Lokomobilen (La machine à vapeur)”, a work that has never been for sale before, became the auction's highest result with its final price of SEK 9,187,500. Further highlights include Gösta Adrian-Nilsson’s (GAN) magnificent painting ”Sailors” (sold for SEK 6,125,000 ), followed by ”Sailors in Gothenburg” (sold for 3,920,000 SEK). These two masterpieces sold at excellent final prices. Carl Kylbergs, ”Segeltorkning (II)”, achieved a final price of SEK 4,042,500.


– These outstanding results show that Bukowskis succeeds in its ambition to expand internationally and that we continue to offer the best of the best” says Björn, Head of Consignments and Sales of Fine Art.
