9 1/8 x 13 3/8 in. (23.2 x 34 cm.)

Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

The work Figures above Sorrento by Gioacchino La Pira was sold in the Old Masters & 19th Century Art auction at Christies in London in April 2011. It achieved a price of GBP 2,125.00 (€ 2,393.12), exceeding the upper end of the estimate range by 18%. 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).

Oberer Schätzpreis leicht übertroffen

Die Arbeit Figures above Sorrento von Gioacchino La Pira wurde im April 2011 in der Auktion Old Masters & 19th Century Art bei Christies in London versteigert. Sie erzielte dabei einen Preis von GBP 2.125,00 (€ 2.393,12) und übertraf damit das obere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne um 18%. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Gioacchino La Pira auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit The Bay of Naples; and Vesuvius erupting im April 2001 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 8.225,00 (€ 13.259,73).
