Upper estimate price exceeded by 26 %.

In February this year Phillips in an online auction held the auction The Eye That Shapes: Further Selections from the Peter C. Bunnell Collection, which included the work Toutle River Valley, Mount St. Helens by Emmet Gowin. The »bidding war« ended at USD 4,410.00 (€ 4,159.59), 26% above the upper estimate. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Emmet Gowin achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Concerning America and Alfred Stieglitz, and Myself. Richmond, Virginia: by the photographer, 1965. in May 2010 with an auction result of GBP 39,650.00 (€ 46,455.48).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 26 % übertroffen

Im Februar diesen Jahres führte Phillips in einer Online-Auktion die Auktion The Eye That Shapes: Further Selections from the Peter C. Bunnell Collection durch, in der auch die Arbeit Toutle River Valley, Mount St. Helens von Emmet Gowin zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von USD 4.410,00 (€ 4.159,59) und damit 26% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Emmet Gowin erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Concerning America and Alfred Stieglitz, and Myself. Richmond, Virginia: by the photographer, 1965. im Mai 2010 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 39.650,00 (€ 46.455,48).
