SHOJI UEDA
Sketch Album. Tokyo: Nippon Camera-sha, 1974.
Oblong quarto (240 x 260mm). 180 black and white photographs, including those on the wrappers. Original photo-illustrated wrappers, original photo-illustrated dust-jacket, original photo-illustrated slipcase, original printed obi (light spotting and soiling on edges, some soiling on the slipcase and obi). Ueda's signature in blue ink on the first leaf.
FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY UEDA. COMPLETE WITH THE SLIPCASE AND THE RARE OBI.

Upper estimate price exceeded by 41 %.

In May 2009 Christies in London held the auction Photobooks, which included the work Sketch Album. Tokyo: Nippon Camera-sha, 1974. by Shōji Ueda. The »bidding war« ended at GBP 1,125.00 (€ 1,286.99), 41% above the upper estimate. Admittedly, works by Shōji Ueda have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work Self-Portrait With Cat ('Me And Cat') in April 2011 with an auction result of USD 10,000.00 (€ 6,747.18).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 41 % übertroffen

Im Mai 2009 führte Christies in London die Auktion Photobooks durch, in der auch die Arbeit Sketch Album. Tokyo: Nippon Camera-sha, 1974. von Shōji Ueda zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von GBP 1.125,00 (€ 1.286,99) und damit 41% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Shōji Ueda auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit Self-Portrait With Cat ('Me And Cat') im April 2011 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 10.000,00 (€ 6.747,18).
