Upper estimate price exceeded by 31 %.

The work La Voile Blanche by Georges Seurat was auctioned at Christies in New York in March 2021. It achieved a price of USD 4,590,000.00 (€ 3,908,711.57), exceeding the upper end of the estimate range by 31%. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Georges Seurat achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Les Poseuses, Ensemble (Petite version) in November last year with an auction result of USD 149,240,000.00 (€ 144,570,376.83).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 31 % übertroffen
