Konrad Mägi piece sold in Sweden breaks Estonian auction record
In Sweden, Konrad Mägi's work "Rome" was sold at the Bukowski auction house at a record price, with a final hammer price of more than 300,000 euros, to which nearly 70,000 euros will be added. The final price of the work will thus be nearly 370,000 euros, which will almost double the previous record of Johann Köler's "Tatarlanna Mšatka manor garden", the most expensive work of art in Estonia. Köler's work was sold in 2008 at Vaal Gallery for 172,561 euros.
In addition to the work "Rome", an unnamed work by Konrad Mägi was also sold at the Swedish art auction, which was bought at a hammer price of 240,000 euros, but the final price is almost 300,000 euros. The final price of this work breaks the record of the most expensive work of art in Estonia so far.
