Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Elephant Dung by David Hammons was sold in the 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale auction at Phillips in London in October last year. It changed hands for a price of GBP 226,800 (€ 268,697) achieving a result in the upper range of the estimate price range of GBP 150,000 - 250,000. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by David Hammons achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by an untitled work in November 2013 with an auction result of USD 8,005,000 (€ 5,883,434).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Elephant Dung von David Hammons wurde im Oktober letzten Jahres in der Auktion 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale bei Phillips in London versteigert. Dabei wechselte sie für einen Preis von GBP 226.800 (€ 268.697) den Besitzer und erzielte damit ein Ergebnis im oberen Bereich der Schätzpreisspanne von GBP 150.000 – 250.000. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von David Hammons erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte eine Arbeit ohne Titel im November 2013 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 8.005.000 (€ 5.883.434).
