Estimate: 70.000 - 100.000 USD

GIOVANNI FRANCESCO BARBIERI, IL GUERCINO (Cento 1591-1666 Bologna)
Mars brandishing a sword
with number ‘44’ (lower left)
pen and brown ink
10 x 7 3 ⁄ 4 in. (25.5 x 19.7 cm)

Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in New York in January last year. In the Old Master & British Drawings auction, the work Mars brandishing a sword sold for USD 275,000.00 (€ 245,272.92) - well above the upper estimate of USD 100,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work King David in July 2010 with an auction result of GBP 5,193,250.00 (€ 6,244,298.00).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Giovanni Francesco Barbieri erzielte im Januar letzten Jahres bei Christies in New York einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Old Master & British Drawings wurde die Arbeit Mars brandishing a sword für USD 275.000,00 (€ 245.272,92) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von USD 100.000,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Giovanni Francesco Barbieri erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit King David im Juli 2010 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 5.193.250,00 (€ 6.244.298,00).
