Auction result well in line with expectations

The work What I've Got Is Much Worse by Jim Nutt was auctioned at Christies in New York in May 2016. The price achieved of USD 125,000.00 (€ 112,258.64) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as USD 100,000.00 – 150,000.00. Admittedly, works by Jim Nutt have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work "Tooth" in October last year with an auction result of SEK 10,500,000.00 (€ 960,791.22).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit What I've Got Is Much Worse von Jim Nutt kam im Mai 2016 bei Christies in New York zur Auktion. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 125.000,00 (€ 112.258,64) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 100.000,00 – 150.000,00 angegeben worden. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Jim Nutt auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit "Tooth" im Oktober letzten Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von SEK 10.500.000,00 (€ 960.791,22).
