Auction result misses estimated price range

When the work Madeleine Descorps et son fils Bernard au jardin (étude I) by Édouard Vuillard was auctioned at Christies in New York in May 2015, the result was somewhat disappointing. The auction house had previously given the estimated price as a range of USD 200,000.00 – 400,000.00, of which not even the lower limit was reached - in fact, the artwork changed hands for USD 125,000.00 (€ 113,698.38). Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Édouard Vuillard achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Misia et Vallotton à Villeneuve in November 2017 with an auction result of USD 17,750,000.00 (€ 14,918,473.69).

Auktionsergebnis verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Als die Arbeit Madeleine Descorps et son fils Bernard au jardin (étude I) von Édouard Vuillard im Mai 2015 bei Christies in New York versteigert wurde, fiel das Ergebnis ein wenig enttäuschend aus. Das Auktionshaus hatte den Schätzpreis zuvor mit einer Spanne von USD 200.000,00 – 400.000,00 angegeben, von der nicht einmal die Untergrenze erreicht wurde - tatsächlich wechselte das Kunstwerk für USD 125.000,00 (€ 113.698,38) den Besitzer. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Édouard Vuillard erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Misia et Vallotton à Villeneuve im November 2017 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 17.750.000,00 (€ 14.918.473,69).
