Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by Giacomo Balla achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in Amsterdam in October this year. In the Masterpieces from the Collection of Sam Josefowitz: A Lifetime of Discovery and Scholarship auction, the work Fallimento (prima idea) sold for GBP 352,800.00 (€ 405,112.41) - well above the upper estimate of GBP 120,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Giacomo Balla achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Automobile In Corsa in November 2013 with an auction result of USD 11,477,000.00 (€ 8,435,249.15).

Dieses Kunstwerk von Giacomo Balla erzielte im Oktober diesen Jahres bei Christies in Amsterdam einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Masterpieces from the Collection of Sam Josefowitz: A Lifetime of Discovery and Scholarship wurde die Arbeit Fallimento (prima idea) für GBP 352.800,00 (€ 405.112,41) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von GBP 120.000,00.

Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Automobile In Corsa im November 2013 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 11.477.000,00 (€ 8.435.249,15).
