GEORGE GROSZ (1893-1959)
Truro, In the Dunes
signed, dated, titled and inscribed 'George Grosz Truro in the dunes drawn on the day of the declaration of War 1939 against Hitlerman and those apocalyptic clouds come like a message of foreboding death and destruction so it seemed to me as if Harwich itself was horrified'
watercolor, pastel and charcoal on paper
14 ¾ x 21 ½ in. (37.5 x 54.6 cm.)
Executed in Cape Cod on 3 September 1939

Upper estimate price exceeded by 76 %.

This artwork by George Grosz achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in New York in November this year. In the Impressionist & Modern Works on Paper Sale auction, the work Truro, In the Dunes sold for USD 17,640.00 (€ 16,171.62) - well above the upper estimate of USD 10,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by George Grosz achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Gefährliche Straße in February 2020 with an auction result of GBP 9,740,250.00 (€ 11,288,971.84).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 76 % übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von George Grosz erzielte im November diesen Jahres bei Christies in New York einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Impressionist & Modern Works on Paper Sale wurde die Arbeit Truro, In the Dunes für USD 17.640,00 (€ 16.171,62) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von USD 10.000,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von George Grosz erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Gefährliche Straße im Februar 2020 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 9.740.250,00 (€ 11.288.971,84).
