The work Approach of Night (Hoboken) by Oscar Bluemner was sold in the Modern American Masterworks from the Ted Shen Collection auction at Christies in New York in April this year. The »bidding war« ended at USD 365,400.00 (€ 330,978.26), 46% above the upper estimate. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Oscar Bluemner achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Illusion of a Prairie, New Jersey (Red Farm at Pochuck) in November 2011 with an auction result of USD 5,346,500.00 (€ 3,974,206.50).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 46 % übertroffen
