Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by Maurits Cornelis Escher achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in London in October this year. In the Prints and Multiples auction, the work Horseman sold for USD 22,680.00 (€ 21,461.01) - well above the upper estimate of USD 10,000.00. 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).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Maurits Cornelis Escher erzielte im Oktober diesen Jahres bei Christies in London einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Prints and Multiples wurde die Arbeit Horseman für USD 22.680,00 (€ 21.461,01) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von USD 10.000,00. 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).
