This artwork by Sorel Etrog achieved an unexpectedly high price at Sothebys in New York in April 2020. In the Joseph H. Hirshhorn: Collector for A Nation - An Online Sale auction, the work Moses sold for USD 56,250.00 (€ 51,346.42) - well above the upper estimate of USD 30,000.00. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Sorel Etrog - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Family Group, which sold at auction in November 2013 for USD 161,000.00 (€ 118,330.15).
