Auction result misses estimated price range

When the work Mono Lake by Brett Weston was auctioned at Bonhams in Los Angeles in December this year, the result was somewhat disappointing. The auction house had previously given the estimated price as a range of USD 5,000.00 – 7,000.00, of which not even the lower limit was reached - in fact, the artwork changed hands for USD 2,816.00 (€ 2,545.65). Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Brett Weston achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work 'Hand And Ear' (Ramiel Mcgehee) in April 2012 with an auction result of USD 62,500.00 (€ 47,244.69).

Auktionsergebnis verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Als die Arbeit Mono Lake von Brett Weston im Dezember diesen Jahres bei Bonhams in Los Angeles versteigert wurde, fiel das Ergebnis ein wenig enttäuschend aus. Das Auktionshaus hatte den Schätzpreis zuvor mit einer Spanne von USD 5.000,00 – 7.000,00 angegeben, von der nicht einmal die Untergrenze erreicht wurde - tatsächlich wechselte das Kunstwerk für USD 2.816,00 (€ 2.545,65) den Besitzer. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Brett Weston erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit 'Hand And Ear' (Ramiel Mcgehee) im April 2012 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 62.500,00 (€ 47.244,69).
