Auction result misses estimated price range

In November last year a collector was able to acquire the work Puzzling Times by David Hammons for USD 877,000 (€ 777,000). This price was achieved in the auction 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale at Phillips in New York and was even below the estimate range of USD 1,000,000 – 1,500,000 set by the auction house. Admittedly, works by David Hammons have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work without title in November 2013 with an auction result of USD 8,005,000 (€ 5,883,434).

Auktionsergebnis verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Im November letzten Jahres konnte ein Sammler die Arbeit Puzzling Times von David Hammons für USD 877.000 (€ 777.000) erwerben. Dieser Preis wurde in der Auktion 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale bei Phillips in New York erzielt und lag noch unterhalb der von dem Auktionshaus angesetzten Schätzpreisspanne von USD 1.000.000 – 1.500.000. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von David Hammons auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen eine Arbeit ohne Titel im November 2013 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 8.005.000 (€ 5.883.434).
