Auction result well in line with expectations

In May this year Christies in New York held the auction A Century of Art: The Gerald Fineberg Collection Part I, which included the work Gangster of Love by John Chamberlain. The price achieved of USD 1,008,000.00 (€ 946,123.52) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as USD 800,000.00 – 1,200,000.00. Admittedly, works by John Chamberlain have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work Nutcracker in May 2018 with an auction result of USD 5,534,300.00 (€ 4,742,330.76).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im Mai diesen Jahres führte Christies in New York die Auktion A Century of Art: The Gerald Fineberg Collection Part I durch, in der auch die Arbeit Gangster of Love von John Chamberlain zur Versteigerung kam. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 1.008.000,00 (€ 946.123,52) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 800.000,00 – 1.200.000,00 angegeben worden. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von John Chamberlain auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit Nutcracker im Mai 2018 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 5.534.300,00 (€ 4.742.330,76).
