Auction result well in line with expectations

In November 2017 Christies in New York held the auction American Art, which included the work A New England Lake by Frederic Church. The price achieved of USD 1,812,500.00 (€ 1,523,365.27) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as USD 1,500,000.00 – 2,500,000.00. 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).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im November 2017 führte Christies in New York die Auktion American Art durch, in der auch die Arbeit A New England Lake von Frederic Church zur Versteigerung kam. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 1.812.500,00 (€ 1.523.365,27) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 1.500.000,00 – 2.500.000,00 angegeben worden. Für andere Arbeiten von Frederic Church mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Valley Of Santa Isabel, New Granada beobachtet, die im Mai 2018 für USD 5.026.250,00 (€ 4.306.983,72) versteigert wurde.
