Auction result well in line with expectations

In May this year Bonhams held the auction Modern & Contemporary Prints & Multiples, which included the work Untitled, from National Collection Fine Arts Portfolio by Lee Bontecou. The price achieved of USD 1,785.00 (€ 1,675.43) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as USD 1,500.00 – 2,500.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Lee Bontecou achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work without title in May this year with an auction result of USD 8,690,000.00 (€ 8,156,560.92).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im Mai diesen Jahres führte Bonhams die Auktion Modern & Contemporary Prints & Multiples durch, in der auch die Arbeit Untitled, from National Collection Fine Arts Portfolio von Lee Bontecou zur Versteigerung kam. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 1.785,00 (€ 1.675,43) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 1.500,00 – 2.500,00 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Lee Bontecou erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit ohne Titel im Mai diesen Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 8.690.000,00 (€ 8.156.560,92).
