Auction result well in line with expectations

The work The Riva, No.1, from The First Venice Set by James Abbott McNeill Whistler was sold in the Prints and Multiples auction at Bonhams in London in June last year. The price achieved of GBP 4,080.00 (€ 4,739.80) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as GBP 3,000.00 – 5,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by James Abbott McNeill Whistler achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Whistler Smoking in November 2021 with an auction result of USD 1,200,000.00 (€ 1,063,170.02).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit The Riva, No.1, from The First Venice Set von James Abbott McNeill Whistler wurde im Juni letzten Jahres in der Auktion Prints and Multiples bei Bonhams in London versteigert. Der dabei erzielte Preis von GBP 4.080,00 (€ 4.739,80) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit GBP 3.000,00 – 5.000,00 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von James Abbott McNeill Whistler erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Whistler Smoking im November 2021 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 1.200.000,00 (€ 1.063.170,02).
