Artwork auctioned at three times the upper estimate price

When the work Untitled; Self Portrait: Artist And Tools by Pushpamala N. was auctioned at Christies in Mumbai in December 2013, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - INR 80,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than three times as high at INR 300,000.00 (€ 3,527.11). Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Pushpamala N. achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Phantom Lady or Kismet: A Photo-Romance in September last year with an auction result of USD 37,800.00 (€ 38,638.45).

Kunstwerk zum Dreifachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit Untitled; Self Portrait: Artist And Tools von Pushpamala N. im Dezember 2013 bei Christies in Mumbai versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – INR 80.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit INR 300.000,00 (€ 3.527,11) mehr als dreimal so hoch. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Pushpamala N. erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Phantom Lady or Kismet: A Photo-Romance im September letzten Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 37.800,00 (€ 38.638,45).
