Mother and Child

Found at Christies, New York
Fine American Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture, Lot 64
12. Sep - 12. Sep 2007
Estimate: 4.000 - 6.000 USD
Price realised: 18.750 USD
George de Forest Brush (1855-1941)
Mother and Child
inscribed 'George de Forest Brush Sc' (along the base)
bronze with verdigris patina
34 in. (86.4 cm.) high

Artwork auctioned at three times the upper estimate price

When the work Mother and Child by George de Forest Brush was auctioned at Christies in New York in September 2007, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - USD 6,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than three times as high at USD 18,750.00 (€ 13,186.58). Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by George de Forest Brush achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Council of the War Party in December 2005 with an auction result of USD 2,592,000.00 (€ 2,188,819.46).

Kunstwerk zum Dreifachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit Mother and Child von George de Forest Brush im September 2007 bei Christies in New York versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – USD 6.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit USD 18.750,00 (€ 13.186,58) mehr als dreimal so hoch. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von George de Forest Brush erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Council of the War Party im Dezember 2005 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 2.592.000,00 (€ 2.188.819,46).
