This artwork by Gioacchino La Pira achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in London in January 2009. In the 19th Century European Art & Orientalist Art auction, the work Amalfi dalla Grota dei Cappuccini sold for GBP 2,750.00 (€ 3,095.58) - well above the upper estimate of GBP 1,500.00. Admittedly, works by Gioacchino La Pira have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work The Bay of Naples; and Vesuvius erupting in April 2001 with an auction result of GBP 8,225.00 (€ 13,259.73).
