Found at Christies, New York

Price realised: 4.000 USD
Neil Welliver (AMERICAN, 1929-2005)
Study for Merganser
signed 'Welliver' (lower right)
watercolor and pencil on paper
21 x 24½ in. (53.3 x 62.2 cm.)
Executed in 1987.

Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by Neil Welliver achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in New York in February 2012. In the Christie's Interiors auction, the work Study for Merganser sold for USD 4,000.00 (€ 2,994.24) - well above the upper estimate of USD 1,500.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Neil Welliver achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Anonymous Freshet in March 2015 with an auction result of USD 53,125.00 (€ 49,460.01).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Neil Welliver erzielte im Februar 2012 bei Christies in New York einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Christie's Interiors wurde die Arbeit Study for Merganser für USD 4.000,00 (€ 2.994,24) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von USD 1.500,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Neil Welliver erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Anonymous Freshet im März 2015 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 53.125,00 (€ 49.460,01).
