Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

The work Scene d'une comedie by Honoré Daumier was sold in the Old Master and British Works on Paper auction at Sothebys in New York in January last year. Here, the upper estimate of USD 4,000.00 was slightly exceeded - the artwork found a new owner for USD 4,410.00 (€ 3,933.29). Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Honoré Daumier achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Les Avocats — Le Parquet Des Avocats in May 2013 with an auction result of USD 2,629,000.00 (€ 2,024,176.16).

Oberer Schätzpreis leicht übertroffen

Die Arbeit Scene d'une comedie von Honoré Daumier wurde im Januar letzten Jahres in der Auktion Old Master and British Works on Paper bei Sothebys in New York versteigert. Dabei wurde der obere Schätzpreis von USD 4.000,00 leicht übertroffen – das Kunstwerk fand für USD 4.410,00 (€ 3.933,29) einen neuen Besitzer. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Honoré Daumier erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Les Avocats — Le Parquet Des Avocats im Mai 2013 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 2.629.000,00 (€ 2.024.176,16).
