15. May - 25. May 2023
Estimate: 25.000 - 35.000 USD
Price realised: 31.875 USD
Maurits Cornelis Escher (Dutch, 1898-1972)
Day and Night (Bool et al. 303), 1938
Woodcut in gray, black, and tan on fine laid Japan paper; signed 'MCEscher' in pencil l.l., inscribed 'eigen druck.' in pencil l.r., initialed and dated within the block; matted and framed.
15 3/8 x 26 3/4 in. (39.0 x 68.0 cm)
sheet 19 7/8 x 31 1/8 in. (50.5 x 79.2 cm)
A private Massachusetts collection.

Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Day and Night by Maurits Cornelis Escher was auctioned at Bonhams in May this year. The price achieved of USD 31,875.00 (€ 29,918.34) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as USD 25,000.00 – 35,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Maurits Cornelis Escher achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Reptiles (Bool 327) in April last year with an auction result of USD 756,000.00 (€ 717,471.77).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Day and Night von Maurits Cornelis Escher kam im Mai diesen Jahres bei Bonhams zur Auktion. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 31.875,00 (€ 29.918,34) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 25.000,00 – 35.000,00 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Maurits Cornelis Escher erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Reptiles (Bool 327) im April letzten Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 756.000,00 (€ 717.471,77).
