Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Jack Kerouac on Fire Escape by Allen Ginsberg was sold in the Photographs auction at Bonhams in New York in October 2021. The price achieved of USD 3,187.50 (€ 2,759.26) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as USD 2,500.00 – 3,500.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Allen Ginsberg achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Selected images of Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Neal Cassady and Peter Orlovsky, 1953-1957 in October 2008 with an auction result of USD 35,000.00 (€ 27,598.17).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Jack Kerouac on Fire Escape von Allen Ginsberg wurde im Oktober 2021 in der Auktion Photographs bei Bonhams in New York versteigert. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 3.187,50 (€ 2.759,26) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 2.500,00 – 3.500,00 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Allen Ginsberg erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Selected images of Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Neal Cassady and Peter Orlovsky, 1953-1957 im Oktober 2008 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 35.000,00 (€ 27.598,17).
