The Delmonico Building

Found at Christies, Sydney (Online Auction)
Tales of the City: New York Prints and Photographs of the Early 20th Century, Lot 81
8. Aug - 18. Aug 2023
Estimate: 2.000 - 3.000 USD
Price realised: 4.410 USD
CHARLES SHEELER (1883-1965) The Delmonico Building lithograph, on Rives paper, 1926, inscribed 'Geo. C. Miller / Printer' in pencil, presumably a proof aside from the edition of approximately 50, published by the artist, New York, with wide margins, in generally good condition Image: 9 3 ⁄ 4 x 6 3 ⁄ 4 in. (248 x 172 mm.) Sheet:16 x 11 1 ⁄ 2 in. (406 x 292 mm.)

Upper estimate price exceeded by 47 %.

In August this year Christies in Sydney held the auction Tales of the City: New York Prints and Photographs of the Early 20th Century, which included the work The Delmonico Building by Charles Sheeler. The »bidding war« ended at USD 4,410.00 (€ 4,068.64), 47% above the upper estimate. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Charles Sheeler achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work White Sentinels in May 2018 with an auction result of USD 2,232,500.00 (€ 1,913,024.85).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 47 % übertroffen

Im August diesen Jahres führte Christies in Sydney die Auktion Tales of the City: New York Prints and Photographs of the Early 20th Century durch, in der auch die Arbeit The Delmonico Building von Charles Sheeler zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von USD 4.410,00 (€ 4.068,64) und damit 47% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Charles Sheeler erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit White Sentinels im Mai 2018 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 2.232.500,00 (€ 1.913.024,85).
