Edwin Austin Abbey (Philadelphia 1852-1911 London)
With pride upon her brown
signed 'E.A.Abbey'
black chalk, pen and black ink, grey wash, heightened with white
17 x 25¾ in. (432 x 654 mm.)

Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by Edwin Austin Abbey achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in New York in January 2009. In the The Scholars Eye: Property from the Julius Held Collection Part II auction, the work With pride upon her brown sold for USD 2,125 (€ 1,660) - well above the upper estimate of USD 900. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Edwin Austin Abbey - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Woman In White, which sold at auction in March 2009 for USD 8,125 (€ 6,127).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Edwin Austin Abbey erzielte im Januar 2009 bei Christies in New York einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion The Scholars Eye: Property from the Julius Held Collection Part II wurde die Arbeit With pride upon her brown für USD 2.125 (€ 1.660) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von USD 900. Für andere Arbeiten von Edwin Austin Abbey mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Woman In White beobachtet, die im März 2009 für USD 8.125 (€ 6.127) versteigert wurde.
