Auction result well in line with expectations

In May last year Christies in New York held the auction American Art, which included the work Scherzo No. 2 by Rolph Scarlett. The estimated price for the artwork was previously given by the auction house with a range of USD 25,000.00 – 35,000.00, the actual price achieved of USD 25,200.00 (€ 23,483.37) could thus just exceed the lower estimate. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Rolph Scarlett - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work without title, which sold at auction in November 2018 for USD 87,500.00 (€ 77,276.34).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Im Mai letzten Jahres führte Christies in New York die Auktion American Art durch, in der auch die Arbeit Scherzo No. 2 von Rolph Scarlett zur Versteigerung kam. Der Schätzpreis für das Kunstwerk wurde von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit einer Spanne von USD 25.000,00 – 35.000,00 angegeben, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis von USD 25.200,00 (€ 23.483,37) konnte den unteren Schätzpreis somit knapp übertreffen. Für andere Arbeiten von Rolph Scarlett mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit ohne Titel beobachtet, die im November 2018 für USD 87.500,00 (€ 77.276,34) versteigert wurde.
