Artwork auctioned at four times the upper estimate price

When the work La Demoiselle D'Honneur by Eva Gonzalès was auctioned at Sothebys in New York in January 2013, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - USD 600,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than four times as high at USD 2,546,500.00 (€ 1,874,631.92). Despite this good result, it is not the highest hammer price for an artwork by Eva Gonzalès; that achieved among the auctions we observed the lot Au bord de la mer (Honfleur) sold at auction in November last year with the realized price of USD 2,700,000.00 (€ 2,615,518.74).

Kunstwerk zum Vierfachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit La Demoiselle D'Honneur von Eva Gonzalès im Januar 2013 bei Sothebys in New York versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – USD 600.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit USD 2.546.500,00 (€ 1.874.631,92) mehr als viermal so hoch. Trotz des guten Ergebnisses ist dies nicht der höchste Zuschlag für ein Kunstwerk von Eva Gonzalès; den erzielte unter den von uns beobachteten Auktionen die Arbeit Au bord de la mer (Honfleur) im November letzten Jahres mit dem Hammerpreis von USD 2.700.000,00 (€ 2.615.518,74).
