Auction result well in line with expectations

In December 2017 Sothebys in New York held the auction Israeli & International Art, which included the work Ritual Objects by Avigdor Arikha. The price achieved of USD 68,750.00 (€ 57,186.82) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as USD 60,000.00 – 80,000.00. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Avigdor Arikha - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Nude On A Sheet, which sold at auction in December 2017 for USD 162,500.00 (€ 135,168.86).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im Dezember 2017 führte Sothebys in New York die Auktion Israeli & International Art durch, in der auch die Arbeit Ritual Objects von Avigdor Arikha zur Versteigerung kam. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 68.750,00 (€ 57.186,82) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 60.000,00 – 80.000,00 angegeben worden. Für andere Arbeiten von Avigdor Arikha mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Nude On A Sheet beobachtet, die im Dezember 2017 für USD 162.500,00 (€ 135.168,86) versteigert wurde.
