Maurits Cornelis Escher

Tropea, Calabria

Found at Christies, Hong Kong (Online Auction)
Prints and Multiples, Lot 82
13. Sep - 27. Sep 2023
Estimate: 10.000 - 11.000 GBP
Price realised: 27.720 GBP
MAURITS CORNELIS ESCHER (1898-1972) Tropea, Calabria lithograph, 1931, on wove paper, signed in pencil, numbered No. 31/40 Image 312 x 234 mm. Sheet 380 x 297 mm.

Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by Maurits Cornelis Escher achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in Hong Kong in September this year. In the Prints and Multiples auction, the work Tropea, Calabria sold for GBP 27,720.00 (€ 27,720.00) - well above the upper estimate of GBP 11,000.00. 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 September diesen Jahres bei Christies in Hong Kong einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Prints and Multiples wurde die Arbeit Tropea, Calabria für GBP 27.720,00 (€ 27.720,00) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von GBP 11.000,00. 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).
