Auction result well in line with expectations

In June this year Sothebys in Zurich held the auction Modern & Contemporary Auction, which included the work Untitled (US Embassies) (ULAE 28), 1999 by Jasper Johns. The price achieved of CHF 17,640 (€ 17,643) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been given by the auction house as CHF 15,000 - 20,000. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Jasper Johns achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Flag in November 2014 with an auction result of USD 36,005,000 (€ 28,947,580).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im Juni diesen Jahres führte Sothebys in Zürich die Auktion Modern & Contemporary Auction durch, in der auch die Arbeit Untitled (US Embassies) (ULAE 28), 1999 von Jasper Johns zur Versteigerung kam. Der dabei erzielte Preis von CHF 17.640 (€ 17.643) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit CHF 15.000 – 20.000 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Jasper Johns erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Flag im November 2014 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 36.005.000 (€ 28.947.580).
