Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Buffle et galet dessinant un visage by Le Corbusier was auctioned at Bonhams in New York in November this year. The estimated price for the artwork was previously given by the auction house with a range of USD 12,000.00 – 18,000.00, the actual price achieved of USD 12,800.00 (€ 11,734.51) could thus just exceed the lower estimate. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Le Corbusier achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Femme rouge et pelote verte in November 2015 with an auction result of USD 4,645,000.00 (€ 4,397,841.32).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Buffle et galet dessinant un visage von Le Corbusier kam im November diesen Jahres bei Bonhams in New York zur Auktion. Der Schätzpreis für das Kunstwerk wurde von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit einer Spanne von USD 12.000,00 – 18.000,00 angegeben, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis von USD 12.800,00 (€ 11.734,51) konnte den unteren Schätzpreis somit knapp übertreffen. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Le Corbusier erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Femme rouge et pelote verte im November 2015 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 4.645.000,00 (€ 4.397.841,32).
