Auction result misses estimated price range

This work of art by Frida Kahlo could be acquired at Sothebys in New York in May 2011 for an unexpectedly low price. In the A Discerning Eye: Latin American auction, the work Autorretrato En Miniatura changed hands for USD 566,500.00 (€ 394,059.54) - missing the lower end of the estimate range of USD 800,000.00 – 1,200,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Frida Kahlo achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Diego y yo in November 2021 with an auction result of USD 34,883,000.00 (€ 30,905,466.47).

Auktionsergebnis verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Dieses Kunstwerk von Frida Kahlo konnte im Mai 2011 bei Sothebys in New York für einen unerwartet niedrigen Preis ersteigert werden. In der Auktion A Discerning Eye: Latin American wechselte die Arbeit Autorretrato En Miniatura für USD 566.500,00 (€ 394.059,54) den Besitzer – und verfehlte damit das untere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne von USD 800.000,00 – 1.200.000,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Frida Kahlo erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Diego y yo im November 2021 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 34.883.000,00 (€ 30.905.466,47).
