One of the galleries representing Christo since 1984 is Guy Pieters through his premises in Knokke, Saint-Tropez, Saint-Paul-de-Vence and Paris. At his first significant exhibition in 1989, the Umbrellas series cost $ 110,000 each. In the late 1990s, the gallery sold a large-scale work by A. Gates for $ 220,000, and recently L’Arc de Triomphe wrapped at € 1.5 million ($ 1.8 million) each, this is the highest price the gallery has sold for Christo’s artwork.
The gallery’s clients for Christo’s works are mainly Belgians, Germans and French, who are usually between 35 and 65 years old and are willing to spend 60,000 to 1.2 million euros (71,000 to 1.4 million dollars) on a piece. … “Since the early 1980s, the demand for their work has grown significantly,” said Guy Peters. “Prices started to rise in the mid-1990s. International interest grew and large private collections of works by Christo and Jeanne-Claude were created … In the last 10 years, the results of auctions have also grown. ”
