16 ½ x 24 ¼ in. (42 x 62 cm.)

Artwork auctioned at three times the upper estimate price

When the work Jerusalem by Georg Macco was auctioned at Christies in London in January 2015, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - GBP 4,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than three times as high at GBP 13,125.00 (€ 17,468.22). However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Georg Macco - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work The Orange Seller, Outside Bab Zuwayla, Cairo, which sold at auction in April 2006 for USD 48,000.00 (€ 38,022.81).

Kunstwerk zum Dreifachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit Jerusalem von Georg Macco im Januar 2015 bei Christies in London versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – GBP 4.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit GBP 13.125,00 (€ 17.468,22) mehr als dreimal so hoch. Für andere Arbeiten von Georg Macco mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit The Orange Seller, Outside Bab Zuwayla, Cairo beobachtet, die im April 2006 für USD 48.000,00 (€ 38.022,81) versteigert wurde.
