Auction result well in line with expectations

In February this year Bonhams held the auction Post War & Contemporary Art, which included the work Watcher, 1997 by Eric Fischl. The estimated price for the artwork was previously given by the auction house with a range of USD 30,000.00 – 50,000.00, the actual price achieved of USD 31,875.00 (€ 30,065.08) could thus just exceed the lower estimate. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Eric Fischl achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work The Old Man's Boat and the Old Man's Dog in May last year with an auction result of USD 4,140,000.00 (€ 3,857,981.55).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im Februar diesen Jahres führte Bonhams die Auktion Post War & Contemporary Art durch, in der auch die Arbeit Watcher, 1997 von Eric Fischl zur Versteigerung kam. Der Schätzpreis für das Kunstwerk wurde von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit einer Spanne von USD 30.000,00 – 50.000,00 angegeben, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis von USD 31.875,00 (€ 30.065,08) konnte den unteren Schätzpreis somit knapp übertreffen. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Eric Fischl erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit The Old Man's Boat and the Old Man's Dog im Mai letzten Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 4.140.000,00 (€ 3.857.981,55).
