Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

In May this year Sothebys in London held the auction Photographs, which included the work Mirtoan Sea, Sounion by Hiroshi Sugimoto. The »bidding war« ended at GBP 23,940 (€ 28,163), 20% above the upper estimate. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Hiroshi Sugimoto achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Black Sea, Ozuluce; Yellow Sea, Cheju; Red Sea, Safaga in May 2007 with an auction result of USD 1,888,000 (€ 1,403,404).

Oberer Schätzpreis leicht übertroffen

Im Mai diesen Jahres führte Sothebys in London die Auktion Photographs durch, in der auch die Arbeit Mirtoan Sea, Sounion von Hiroshi Sugimoto zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von GBP 23.940 (€ 28.163) und damit 20% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Hiroshi Sugimoto erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Black Sea, Ozuluce; Yellow Sea, Cheju; Red Sea, Safaga im Mai 2007 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 1.888.000 (€ 1.403.404).
