JAMES WEBB (BRITISH, 1825-1895)

Please note this lot is the property of a consumer. See H1 of the Conditions of Sale.

Upper estimate price exceeded by 77 %.

This artwork by James Webb achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in London in December 2021. In the British and European Art auction, the work Dover sold for GBP 10,625.00 (€ 12,673.40) - well above the upper estimate of GBP 6,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by James Webb achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Ansicht von Köln mit dem unvollendeten Dom in May 2020 with an auction result of EUR 185,938.00.

Oberer Schätzpreis um 77 % übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von James Webb erzielte im Dezember 2021 bei Christies in London einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion British and European Art wurde die Arbeit Dover für GBP 10.625,00 (€ 12.673,40) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von GBP 6.000,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von James Webb erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Ansicht von Köln mit dem unvollendeten Dom im Mai 2020 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von EUR 185.938,00.
