The new online auction site Auctionata, however, has shown that collectors are willing to spend big money online under the right circumstances. Lot 57 in its June 21 auction, a previously unknown watercolor by Egon Schiele titled Reclining Woman, set a world record for a work of art offered exclusively online, selling for 1.827 million Euros (US$2.418 million) with premium.

Discoveries such as this recently uncovered original watercolour by Egon Schiele are extremely rare and are guaranteed to cause quite a buzz in the art market.

Das Kunstwerk hat alle Qualitäten, in der deutschen Auktionslandschaft zu den teuersten Losen des Jahres aufzusteigen: Egon Schieles “Liegende Frau” von 1916.

The word “auction” evokes the swift chatter of an auctioneer, the reserved murmurs of a live crowd of spectators and bidder and the smack of a gavel indicating a closed bid. At least it used to. Now, in an age of ecommerce, we tend to think of sites like eBay, with its long bid times and low quality item images. Berlin, Germany-based Auctionata is attempting to bring the action and live detail of auctions back by putting them online and it’s just raised $20.2 million to do it. Auctionata’s platform is more or less an online television show.

The online auction house is the rising star among Austrian expats in Berlin.
Die Presse, 29 December 2012
Until now, the online art and antiques market has been dominated by Ebay-style sites. Even on the biggest auction portals, users are also placing more and more antiques and art, and websites like artprice.com and artnet.de run their own online shops with countdown-style auctions. But none of them carry the weight with which Zacke is now attacking the market.
