Despite a disappointment, a good price for Giacomo Balla

This work of art by Giacomo Balla could be acquired at Sothebys in New York in November 2013 for an unexpectedly low price. In the Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale auction, the work Automobile In Corsa changed hands for USD 11,477,000.00 (€ 8,435,249.15) - missing the lower end of the estimate range of USD 12,000,000.00 – 18,000,000.00. Despite this disappointing result, Automobile In Corsa is the most expensive artwork by Giacomo Balla that we have observed at auction so far.

Trotz Enttäuschung ein guter Preis für Giacomo Balla

Dieses Kunstwerk von Giacomo Balla konnte im November 2013 bei Sothebys in New York für einen unerwartet niedrigen Preis ersteigert werden. In der Auktion Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale wechselte die Arbeit Automobile In Corsa für USD 11.477.000,00 (€ 8.435.249,15) den Besitzer – und verfehlte damit das untere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne von USD 12.000.000,00 – 18.000.000,00. Trotz dieses enttäuschenden Ergebnisses ist Automobile In Corsa das teuerste Kunstwerk von Giacomo Balla, das wir bisher bei Auktionen beobachtet haben.
