Artwork auctioned at five times the upper estimate price

When the work A mountainous landscape by George Barnard was auctioned at Christies in London in October 2000, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - GBP 350.00 but the actual price achieved was more than five times as high at GBP 1,880.00 (€ 3,213.46). However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by George Barnard - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Selected Images, which sold at auction in October 2017 for USD 7,500.00 (€ 6,438.87).

Kunstwerk zum Fünffachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit A mountainous landscape von George Barnard im Oktober 2000 bei Christies in London versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – GBP 350,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit GBP 1.880,00 (€ 3.213,46) mehr als fünfmal so hoch. Für andere Arbeiten von George Barnard mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Selected Images beobachtet, die im Oktober 2017 für USD 7.500,00 (€ 6.438,87) versteigert wurde.
