Auction result well in line with expectations

In July 2021 Sothebys in Paris held the auction In the Studio of Paolo Roversi, which included the work Robert Frank photographing Allen Ginsberg for Collected Poems 1947-1980 dust-jacket, Robert Frank studio, 1984 by Allen Ginsberg. The price achieved of EUR 5,040.00 was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as EUR 4,000.00 – 6,000.00. Admittedly, works by Allen Ginsberg have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved 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

Im Juli 2021 führte Sothebys in Paris die Auktion In the Studio of Paolo Roversi durch, in der auch die Arbeit Robert Frank photographing Allen Ginsberg for Collected Poems 1947-1980 dust-jacket, Robert Frank studio, 1984 von Allen Ginsberg zur Versteigerung kam. Der dabei erzielte Preis von EUR 5.040,00 lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit EUR 4.000,00 – 6.000,00 angegeben worden. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Allen Ginsberg auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen 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).
