Throwing Three Balls in the Air to Get a Straight Line (Best of Thirty-Six Attempts)

Found at Phillips, 19 -
Heatwave: Online Auction, Lot 118
26. Sep - 26. Sep 2023
Estimate: 3.000 - 5.000 GBP
Price realised: 4.064 GBP
signed and numbered '028 John Baldessari Franco Toselli' on the colophon
offset lithograph with full margins with title page and colophon, in the original paper folder and portfolio
each lithograph 24.2 x 32.4 cm (9 1/2 x 12 3/4 in.)
portfolio 27.1 x 34.5 cm (10 5/8 x 13 5/8 in.)
Executed in 1973, this work is number 28 from an edition of 500.

Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Throwing Three Balls in the Air to Get a Straight Line (Best of Thirty-Six Attempts) by John Baldessari was sold in the Heatwave: Online Auction auction at Phillips in 19 - in September this year. The price achieved of GBP 4,064.00 (€ 4,064.00) 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 John Baldessari achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Commissioned Painting:  A Painting By Edgar Transue in May 2014 with an auction result of USD 2,517,000.00 (€ 1,845,307.92).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Throwing Three Balls in the Air to Get a Straight Line (Best of Thirty-Six Attempts) von John Baldessari wurde im September diesen Jahres in der Auktion Heatwave: Online Auction bei Phillips in 19 - versteigert. Der dabei erzielte Preis von GBP 4.064,00 (€ 4.064,00) 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 John Baldessari erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Commissioned Painting:  A Painting By Edgar Transue im Mai 2014 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 2.517.000,00 (€ 1.845.307,92).
