HORST P. HORST (1906–1999) Hands, Hands, New York, 1941 gelatin silver print, printed later embossed photographer's credit (recto); stamped photographer's copyright credit in ink, titled and dated in pencil (verso) image: 22 x 15 1/4 in. (55.8 x 38.7 cm.) sheet: 24 x 20 in. (60.9 x 50.8 cm.)

Auction result misses estimated price range

When the work Hands, Hands, New York, 1941 by Horst P. Horst was auctioned at Christies in London in October this year, the result was somewhat disappointing. The auction house had previously given the estimated price as a range of USD 15,000.00 – 25,000.00, of which not even the lower limit was reached - in fact, the artwork changed hands for USD 9,450.00 (€ 8,942.09). Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Horst P. Horst achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Mainbocher Corset, Paris, 1939 in April 2007 with an auction result of USD 288,000.00 (€ 210,834.55).

Auktionsergebnis verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Als die Arbeit Hands, Hands, New York, 1941 von Horst P. Horst im Oktober diesen Jahres bei Christies in London versteigert wurde, fiel das Ergebnis ein wenig enttäuschend aus. Das Auktionshaus hatte den Schätzpreis zuvor mit einer Spanne von USD 15.000,00 – 25.000,00 angegeben, von der nicht einmal die Untergrenze erreicht wurde - tatsächlich wechselte das Kunstwerk für USD 9.450,00 (€ 8.942,09) den Besitzer. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Horst P. Horst erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Mainbocher Corset, Paris, 1939 im April 2007 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 288.000,00 (€ 210.834,55).
