Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Study From The Ballet 'Orpheus' by George Platt Lynes was sold in the The Male Form auction at Bonhams in London in June 2021. The price achieved of GBP 1,275.00 (€ 1,485.71) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as GBP 1,000.00 – 1,500.00. 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 im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Der dabei erzielte Preis von GBP 1.275,00 (€ 1.485,71) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit GBP 1.000,00 – 1.500,00 angegeben worden. 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).
