Upper estimate price exceeded by 51 %.

The work The Tale by James Tissot was auctioned at Christies in London in March last year. It achieved a price of GBP 302,400.00 (€ 358,529.23), exceeding the upper end of the estimate range by 51%. Admittedly, works by James Tissot have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work A Visit To The Yacht (La Visite Au Navire) in December 2013 with an auction result of GBP 2,210,500.00 (€ 2,658,888.67).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 51 % übertroffen

Die Arbeit The Tale von James Tissot kam im März letzten Jahres bei Christies in London zur Auktion. Sie erzielte dabei einen Preis von GBP 302.400,00 (€ 358.529,23) und übertraf damit das obere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne um 51%. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von James Tissot auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit A Visit To The Yacht (La Visite Au Navire) im Dezember 2013 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 2.210.500,00 (€ 2.658.888,67).
