Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Le Château de Chillon, Lake Geneva by Gustave Courbet was sold in the British and European Art: Part 1 auction at Christies in London in December last year. The estimated price for the artwork was previously given by the auction house with a range of GBP 400,000.00 – 600,000.00, the actual price achieved of GBP 403,200.00 (€ 455,173.53) could thus just exceed the lower estimate. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Gustave Courbet achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Femme Nue Couchée in November 2015 with an auction result of USD 15,285,000.00 (€ 14,471,690.97).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Le Château de Chillon, Lake Geneva von Gustave Courbet wurde im Dezember letzten Jahres in der Auktion British and European Art: Part 1 bei Christies in London versteigert. Der Schätzpreis für das Kunstwerk wurde von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit einer Spanne von GBP 400.000,00 – 600.000,00 angegeben, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis von GBP 403.200,00 (€ 455.173,53) konnte den unteren Schätzpreis somit knapp übertreffen. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Gustave Courbet erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Femme Nue Couchée im November 2015 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 15.285.000,00 (€ 14.471.690,97).
