This artwork by Tom Wesselmann achieved an unexpectedly high price at Bonhams in Paris in January 2024. In the Post-War & Contemporary Art Online auction, the work Smoking cigarette sold for EUR 9,600.00 - well above the upper estimate of EUR 5,000.00. 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 um 92 % übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Tom Wesselmann erzielte im Januar 2024 bei Bonhams in Paris einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Post-War & Contemporary Art Online wurde die Arbeit Smoking cigarette für EUR 9.600,00 versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von EUR 5.000,00. 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).
