A top price for Pushpamala N. - as previously expected

The work Phantom Lady or Kismet: A Photo-Romance by Pushpamala N. was auctioned at Christies in New York in September last year. The price achieved of USD 37,800.00 (€ 38,638.45) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as USD 30,000.00 – 50,000.00. Even if this result could not surprise positively, Phantom Lady or Kismet: A Photo-Romance is the most expensive artwork by Pushpamala N. that we have observed at auctions so far.

Ein Spitzenpreis mit Ansage

Die Arbeit Phantom Lady or Kismet: A Photo-Romance von Pushpamala N. kam im September letzten Jahres bei Christies in New York zur Auktion. Der dabei erzielte Preis von USD 37.800,00 (€ 38.638,45) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit USD 30.000,00 – 50.000,00 angegeben worden. Auch wenn das Ergebnis damit nicht positiv überraschen konnte, ist Phantom Lady or Kismet: A Photo-Romance das teuerste Kunstwerk von Pushpamala N., das wir bisher bei Auktionen beobachtet haben.
