Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Femme couchée qui rêve by Alberto Giacometti was sold in the 20th Century Evening Sale auction at Christies in New York in November this year. The price achieved of USD 3,780,000 (€ 3,303,618) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been given by the auction house as USD 3,000,000 - 5,000,000. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Alberto Giacometti achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work L'homme au doigt in May 2015 with an auction result of USD 141,285,000 (€ 128,511,006).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Femme couchée qui rêve von Alberto Giacometti wurde im November diesen Jahres in der Auktion 20th Century Evening Sale bei Christies in New York versteigert. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 3.780.000 (€ 3.303.618) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 3.000.000 – 5.000.000 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Alberto Giacometti erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit L'homme au doigt im Mai 2015 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 141.285.000 (€ 128.511.006).
