Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Children Playing by Alton Pickens was sold in the American Art auction at Bonhams in New York in July 2020. The price achieved of USD 4,450 (€ 3,780) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been given by the auction house as USD 3,000 - 5,000. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Alton Pickens achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work The Acrobat in May 2019 with an auction result of USD 93,825 (€ 84,156).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Children Playing von Alton Pickens kam im Juli 2020 bei Bonhams in New York zur Auktion. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 4.450 (€ 3.780) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 3.000 – 5.000 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Alton Pickens erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit The Acrobat im Mai 2019 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 93.825 (€ 84.156).
