Auction result misses estimated price range

When the work A Capriccio of Roman Ruins by Jacob van der Ulft was auctioned at Sothebys in London in July last year, the result was somewhat disappointing. The auction house had previously given the estimated price as a range of GBP 6,000.00 – 8,000.00, of which not even the lower limit was reached - in fact, the artwork changed hands for GBP 5,292.00 (€ 6,319.59). Admittedly, works by Jacob van der Ulft have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work View of Tivoli from the north in July 2014 with an auction result of GBP 50,000.00 (€ 63,065.72).

Auktionsergebnis verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Als die Arbeit A Capriccio of Roman Ruins von Jacob van der Ulft im Juli letzten Jahres bei Sothebys in London versteigert wurde, fiel das Ergebnis ein wenig enttäuschend aus. Das Auktionshaus hatte den Schätzpreis zuvor mit einer Spanne von GBP 6.000,00 – 8.000,00 angegeben, von der nicht einmal die Untergrenze erreicht wurde - tatsächlich wechselte das Kunstwerk für GBP 5.292,00 (€ 6.319,59) den Besitzer. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Jacob van der Ulft auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit View of Tivoli from the north im Juli 2014 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 50.000,00 (€ 63.065,72).
