La Pira (19th/20th Century)
Fishing boats off Procida
signed, inscribed and dated 'La Pira/Procida 72'
bodycolour, unframed
18½ x 26¼in. (47 x 66.5cm.)
and an unframed watercolour of Vesuvius erupting by night by the same hand (2)

Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

In September 2001 Christies in London held the auction British and Continental Watercolours and Drawings, which included the work Fishing boats off Procida by Gioacchino La Pira. Here, the upper estimate of GBP 3,000.00 was slightly exceeded - the artwork found a new owner for GBP 3,055.00 (€ 4,932.52). However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Gioacchino La Pira - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work The Bay of Naples; and Vesuvius erupting, which sold at auction in April 2001 for GBP 8,225.00 (€ 13,259.73).

Oberer Schätzpreis leicht übertroffen

Im September 2001 führte Christies in London die Auktion British and Continental Watercolours and Drawings durch, in der auch die Arbeit Fishing boats off Procida von Gioacchino La Pira zur Versteigerung kam. Dabei wurde der obere Schätzpreis von GBP 3.000,00 leicht übertroffen – das Kunstwerk fand für GBP 3.055,00 (€ 4.932,52) einen neuen Besitzer. Für andere Arbeiten von Gioacchino La Pira mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit The Bay of Naples; and Vesuvius erupting beobachtet, die im April 2001 für GBP 8.225,00 (€ 13.259,73) versteigert wurde.
