Auction result well in line with expectations

In October this year Christies in Amsterdam held the auction Masterpieces from the Collection of Sam Josefowitz: A Lifetime of Discovery and Scholarship, which included the work La table carcasse by Diego Giacometti. The estimated price for the artwork was previously given by the auction house with a range of GBP 250,000.00 – 400,000.00, the actual price achieved of GBP 252,000.00 (€ 289,366.01) could thus just exceed the lower estimate. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Diego Giacometti achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work La console 'Hommage à Böcklin' in October this year with an auction result of GBP 5,122,000.00 (€ 5,881,478.99).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im Oktober diesen Jahres führte Christies in Amsterdam die Auktion Masterpieces from the Collection of Sam Josefowitz: A Lifetime of Discovery and Scholarship durch, in der auch die Arbeit La table carcasse von Diego Giacometti zur Versteigerung kam. Der Schätzpreis für das Kunstwerk wurde von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit einer Spanne von GBP 250.000,00 – 400.000,00 angegeben, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis von GBP 252.000,00 (€ 289.366,01) konnte den unteren Schätzpreis somit knapp übertreffen. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Diego Giacometti erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit La console 'Hommage à Böcklin' im Oktober diesen Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 5.122.000,00 (€ 5.881.478,99).
