Auction result well in line with expectations

The work A Classical Compromise by Grayson Perry was auctioned at Christies in London in December this year. The price achieved of GBP 37,800.00 (€ 43,544.15) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as GBP 30,000.00 – 50,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Grayson Perry achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work I Want To Be An Artist in October 2017 with an auction result of GBP 632,750.00 (€ 721,458.86).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit A Classical Compromise von Grayson Perry kam im Dezember diesen Jahres bei Christies in London zur Auktion. Der dabei erzielte Preis von GBP 37.800,00 (€ 43.544,15) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit GBP 30.000,00 – 50.000,00 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Grayson Perry erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit I Want To Be An Artist im Oktober 2017 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 632.750,00 (€ 721.458,86).
