Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

The work Other World by Maurits Cornelis Escher was auctioned at Christies in London in October this year. It achieved a price of USD 35,280.00 (€ 33,383.80), exceeding the upper end of the estimate range by 18%. 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 leicht übertroffen

Die Arbeit Other World von Maurits Cornelis Escher kam im Oktober diesen Jahres bei Christies in London zur Auktion. Sie erzielte dabei einen Preis von USD 35.280,00 (€ 33.383,80) und übertraf damit das obere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne um 18%. 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).
