Artwork auctioned at three times the upper estimate price

When the work Moosehorn Drought II by Neil Welliver was auctioned at Bonhams in New York in November 2020, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - USD 9,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than three times as high at USD 31,562.50 (€ 26,416.56). Despite this good result, it is not the highest hammer price for an artwork by Neil Welliver; that achieved among the auctions we observed the lot Anonymous Freshet sold at auction in March 2015 with the realized price of USD 53,125.00 (€ 49,460.01).

Kunstwerk zum Dreifachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit Moosehorn Drought II von Neil Welliver im November 2020 bei Bonhams in New York versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – USD 9.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit USD 31.562,50 (€ 26.416,56) mehr als dreimal so hoch. Trotz des guten Ergebnisses ist dies nicht der höchste Zuschlag für ein Kunstwerk von Neil Welliver; den erzielte unter den von uns beobachteten Auktionen die Arbeit Anonymous Freshet im März 2015 mit dem Hammerpreis von USD 53.125,00 (€ 49.460,01).
