Auction result well in line with expectations

In July this year Bonhams in London held the auction Old Master Paintings, which included the work Study for Saint John the Baptist by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri. The price achieved of GBP 51,200.00 (€ 59,734.88) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as GBP 40,000.00 – 60,000.00. 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).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im Juli diesen Jahres führte Bonhams in London die Auktion Old Master Paintings durch, in der auch die Arbeit Study for Saint John the Baptist von Giovanni Francesco Barbieri zur Versteigerung kam. Der dabei erzielte Preis von GBP 51.200,00 (€ 59.734,88) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit GBP 40.000,00 – 60.000,00 angegeben worden. 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).
