The work A Song That Comes To Mind by Melvin Edwards was sold in the Post War and Contemporary Art auction at Christies in New York in September 2003. It achieved a price of USD 8,365.00 (€ 5,069.70), exceeding the upper end of the estimate range by 39%. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Melvin Edwards achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Ile Ogun, Planetary, Road to Goma, Alterable [Four Works|AID1113294] in May this year with an auction result of USD 409,500.00 (€ 384,362.68).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 39 % übertroffen

Die Arbeit A Song That Comes To Mind von Melvin Edwards wurde im September 2003 in der Auktion Post War and Contemporary Art bei Christies in New York versteigert. Sie erzielte dabei einen Preis von USD 8.365,00 (€ 5.069,70) und übertraf damit das obere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne um 39%. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Melvin Edwards erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Ile Ogun, Planetary, Road to Goma, Alterable [Four Works|AID1113294] im Mai diesen Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 409.500,00 (€ 384.362,68).
