Upper estimate price exceeded by 39 %.

In December 2009 Sothebys in New York held the auction American Paintings, Drawings & Sculpture, which included the work George Washington At Valley Forge by Henry Merwin Shrady. The »bidding war« ended at USD 83,500.00 (€ 58,261.23), 39% above the upper estimate. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Henry Merwin Shrady - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work George Washington At Valley Forge, which sold at auction in November 2016 for USD 200,000.00 (€ 189,071.66).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 39 % übertroffen

Im Dezember 2009 führte Sothebys in New York die Auktion American Paintings, Drawings & Sculpture durch, in der auch die Arbeit George Washington At Valley Forge von Henry Merwin Shrady zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von USD 83.500,00 (€ 58.261,23) und damit 39% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Für andere Arbeiten von Henry Merwin Shrady mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit George Washington At Valley Forge beobachtet, die im November 2016 für USD 200.000,00 (€ 189.071,66) versteigert wurde.
