Auction result misses estimated price range

In November last year a collector was able to acquire the work Untitled, from Ten from Leo Castelli by Lee Bontecou for USD 1,134.00 (€ 1,098.52). This price was achieved in the auction A Graphic Century including French Impressions: Prints from Ambroise Vollard and Henri M. Petiet at Christies in New York and was even below the estimate range of USD 1,500.00 – 2,000.00 set by the auction house. 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 verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Im November letzten Jahres konnte ein Sammler die Arbeit Untitled, from Ten from Leo Castelli von Lee Bontecou für USD 1.134,00 (€ 1.098,52) erwerben. Dieser Preis wurde in der Auktion A Graphic Century including French Impressions: Prints from Ambroise Vollard and Henri M. Petiet bei Christies in New York erzielt und lag noch unterhalb der von dem Auktionshaus angesetzten Schätzpreisspanne von USD 1.500,00 – 2.000,00. 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).
