Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by Perle Fine achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in New York in October 2017. In the MANHATTA auction, the work #8 Gridiron sold for USD 22,500 (€ 19,317) - well above the upper estimate of USD 10,000. Despite this good result, it is not the highest hammer price for an artwork by Perle Fine; that achieved among the auctions we observed the lot Polestars and Popsicles sold at auction in September this year with the realized price of USD 25,200 (€ 25,759).
