Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

In November this year Christies in New York held the auction Graphic Century, which included the work Lulu, From Metropolitan Fine Art by Tom Wesselmann. Here, the upper estimate of USD 5,000.00 was slightly exceeded - the artwork found a new owner for USD 5,040.00 (€ 4,620.46). Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Tom Wesselmann achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Great American Nude No. 48 in May 2008 with an auction result of USD 10,681,000.00 (€ 6,864,395.89).

Oberer Schätzpreis leicht übertroffen

Im November diesen Jahres führte Christies in New York die Auktion Graphic Century durch, in der auch die Arbeit Lulu, From Metropolitan Fine Art von Tom Wesselmann zur Versteigerung kam. Dabei wurde der obere Schätzpreis von USD 5.000,00 leicht übertroffen – das Kunstwerk fand für USD 5.040,00 (€ 4.620,46) einen neuen Besitzer. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Tom Wesselmann erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Great American Nude No. 48 im Mai 2008 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 10.681.000,00 (€ 6.864.395,89).
