Estimate: 20.000 - 30.000 USD
Price realised: 12.600 USD
ROBERT FRANK (1924–2019) 14th Street White Tower, New York City, 1948 gelatin silver print, printed 1970s signed, titled and dated in ink (recto) image: 8 7 ⁄ 16 x 18 in. (21.4 x 32.4 cm.) sheet: 16 x 20 in. (40.6 x 50.8 cm.)

Auction result misses estimated price range

This work of art by Robert Frank could be acquired at Christies in New York in October this year for an unexpectedly low price. In the Photographs auction, the work 14th Street White Tower, New York City, 1948 changed hands for USD 12,600.00 (€ 11,922.79) - missing the lower end of the estimate range of USD 20,000.00 – 30,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Robert Frank achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Trolley - New Orleans, 1955 in April 2013 with an auction result of USD 663,750.00 (€ 504,062.88).

Auktionsergebnis verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Dieses Kunstwerk von Robert Frank konnte im Oktober diesen Jahres bei Christies in New York für einen unerwartet niedrigen Preis ersteigert werden. In der Auktion Photographs wechselte die Arbeit 14th Street White Tower, New York City, 1948 für USD 12.600,00 (€ 11.922,79) den Besitzer – und verfehlte damit das untere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne von USD 20.000,00 – 30.000,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Robert Frank erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Trolley - New Orleans, 1955 im April 2013 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 663.750,00 (€ 504.062,88).
