Auction result misses estimated price range

This work of art by Marsden Hartley could be acquired at Sothebys in New York in May 2021 for an unexpectedly low price. In the American Art auction, the work Shell changed hands for USD 214,200.00 (€ 175,660.16) - missing the lower end of the estimate range of USD 300,000.00 – 500,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Marsden Hartley achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Pre-War Pageant in November 2018 with an auction result of USD 27,395,000.00 (€ 24,194,118.17).

Auktionsergebnis verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Dieses Kunstwerk von Marsden Hartley konnte im Mai 2021 bei Sothebys in New York für einen unerwartet niedrigen Preis ersteigert werden. In der Auktion American Art wechselte die Arbeit Shell für USD 214.200,00 (€ 175.660,16) den Besitzer – und verfehlte damit das untere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne von USD 300.000,00 – 500.000,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Marsden Hartley erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Pre-War Pageant im November 2018 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 27.395.000,00 (€ 24.194.118,17).
