Upper estimate price exceeded by 26 %.

The work The Madonna reading by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri was sold in the Old Master and British Works on Paper auction at Sothebys in London in July last year. It achieved a price of GBP 7,560.00 (€ 9,027.98), exceeding the upper end of the estimate range by 26%. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work King David in July 2010 with an auction result of GBP 5,193,250.00 (€ 6,244,298.00).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 26 % übertroffen

Die Arbeit The Madonna reading von Giovanni Francesco Barbieri wurde im Juli letzten Jahres in der Auktion Old Master and British Works on Paper bei Sothebys in London versteigert. Sie erzielte dabei einen Preis von GBP 7.560,00 (€ 9.027,98) und übertraf damit das obere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne um 26%. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Giovanni Francesco Barbieri erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit King David im Juli 2010 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 5.193.250,00 (€ 6.244.298,00).
