ALBERTO GIACOMETTI (1901-1966)
Vase modèle dit aigle
plaster

Executed circa 1934.

Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by Alberto Giacometti achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in New York in May this year. In the The Collection of Thomas and Doris Ammann Evening Sale auction, the work Vase modèle dit aigle sold for USD 1,740,000 (€ 1,621,471) - well above the upper estimate of USD 700,000. 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).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Alberto Giacometti erzielte im Mai diesen Jahres bei Christies in New York einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion The Collection of Thomas and Doris Ammann Evening Sale wurde die Arbeit Vase modèle dit aigle für USD 1.740.000 (€ 1.621.471) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von USD 700.000. 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).
