A top price for Emma Webster

When the work Glen by Emma Webster was auctioned at Christies in New York in May this year, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - USD 120,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than three times as high at USD 378,000.00 (€ 354,796.32). This high result makes Glen the most expensive artwork by Emma Webster that we have observed at auctions so far.

Ein Spitzenpreis für Emma Webster

Als die Arbeit Glen von Emma Webster im Mai diesen Jahres bei Christies in New York versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – USD 120.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit USD 378.000,00 (€ 354.796,32) mehr als dreimal so hoch. Dieses hohe Ergebnis macht Glen zu dem teuersten Kunstwerk von Emma Webster, das wir bisher bei Auktionen beobachtet haben.
