This artwork by Charles Sprague Pearce achieved an unexpectedly high price at Sothebys in New York in June 2020. In the 19th Century European Art auction, the work Sainte Geneviève sold for USD 150,000.00 (€ 133,558.90) - well above the upper estimate of USD 80,000.00. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Charles Sprague Pearce - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Reading By The Shore, which sold at auction in November 2015 for USD 298,000.00 (€ 282,143.53).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 88 % übertroffen
