The work Rough Surf, Mount Desert Island, Maine by Frederic Church was auctioned at Christies in New York in November 2016. Here, the upper estimate of USD 1,200,000.00 was slightly exceeded - the artwork found a new owner for USD 1,267,500.00 (€ 1,198,241.63). However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Frederic Church - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Valley Of Santa Isabel, New Granada, which sold at auction in May 2018 for USD 5,026,250.00 (€ 4,306,983.72).
