Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Strawberries and Cakes by John F. Francis was sold in the Important American Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture auction at Christies in New York in May 2011. The estimated price for the artwork was previously given by the auction house with a range of USD 150,000.00 – 250,000.00, the actual price achieved of USD 158,500.00 (€ 110,253.20) could thus just exceed the lower estimate. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by John F. Francis - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Still Life: Yellow Apples And Chestnuts Spilling From A Basket, which sold at auction in December 2008 for USD 374,500.00 (€ 269,056.69).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Strawberries and Cakes von John F. Francis wurde im Mai 2011 in der Auktion Important American Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture bei Christies in New York versteigert. Der Schätzpreis für das Kunstwerk wurde von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit einer Spanne von USD 150.000,00 – 250.000,00 angegeben, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis von USD 158.500,00 (€ 110.253,20) konnte den unteren Schätzpreis somit knapp übertreffen. Für andere Arbeiten von John F. Francis mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Still Life: Yellow Apples And Chestnuts Spilling From A Basket beobachtet, die im Dezember 2008 für USD 374.500,00 (€ 269.056,69) versteigert wurde.
