Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

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 Table aux caryatides by Diego Giacometti. Here, the upper estimate of GBP 500,000.00 was slightly exceeded - the artwork found a new owner for GBP 567,000.00 (€ 651,073.52). Admittedly, works by Diego Giacometti have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved 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).

Oberer Schätzpreis leicht übertroffen

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 Table aux caryatides von Diego Giacometti zur Versteigerung kam. Dabei wurde der obere Schätzpreis von GBP 500.000,00 leicht übertroffen – das Kunstwerk fand für GBP 567.000,00 (€ 651.073,52) einen neuen Besitzer. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Diego Giacometti auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit La console 'Hommage à Böcklin' im Oktober diesen Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 5.122.000,00 (€ 5.881.478,99).
