Auction result misses estimated price range

In October this year a collector was able to acquire the work Arthur Lee's Model, 1937 by George Platt Lynes for USD 2,520.00 (€ 2,384.56). This price was achieved in the auction A Century of Art: Photographs from The Gerald Fineberg Collection at Christies in London and was even below the estimate range of USD 3,000.00 – 5,000.00 set by the auction house. Admittedly, works by George Platt Lynes have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work Yul Brynner, 1942 in October 2005 with an auction result of USD 16,800.00 (€ 14,005.84).

Auktionsergebnis verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Im Oktober diesen Jahres konnte ein Sammler die Arbeit Arthur Lee's Model, 1937 von George Platt Lynes für USD 2.520,00 (€ 2.384,56) erwerben. Dieser Preis wurde in der Auktion A Century of Art: Photographs from The Gerald Fineberg Collection bei Christies in London erzielt und lag noch unterhalb der von dem Auktionshaus angesetzten Schätzpreisspanne von USD 3.000,00 – 5.000,00. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von George Platt Lynes auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit Yul Brynner, 1942 im Oktober 2005 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 16.800,00 (€ 14.005,84).
