Auction result well in line with expectations

In September 2006 Christies in New York held the auction Fine American Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture, which included the work The Mine by Emil Bisttram. It changed hands for a price of USD 16,800.00 (€ 13,241.90) achieving a result in the upper range of the estimate price range of USD 12,000.00 – 18,000.00. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Emil Bisttram - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Storm Over Taos (Stormy Mountain Scene), which sold at auction in December 2008 for USD 68,500.00 (€ 49,213.31).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im September 2006 führte Christies in New York die Auktion Fine American Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture durch, in der auch die Arbeit The Mine von Emil Bisttram zur Versteigerung kam. Dabei wechselte sie für einen Preis von USD 16.800,00 (€ 13.241,90) den Besitzer und erzielte damit ein Ergebnis im oberen Bereich der Schätzpreisspanne von USD 12.000,00 – 18.000,00. Für andere Arbeiten von Emil Bisttram mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Storm Over Taos (Stormy Mountain Scene) beobachtet, die im Dezember 2008 für USD 68.500,00 (€ 49.213,31) versteigert wurde.
