Auction result misses estimated price range

This work of art by Wassily Kandinsky could be acquired at Christies in New York in May this year for an unexpectedly low price. In the 20th Century Evening Sale auction, the work Ohne titel (Improvisation) changed hands for USD 1,260,000.00 (€ 1,182,654.40) - missing the lower end of the estimate range of USD 1,500,000.00 – 2,000,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Wassily Kandinsky achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Bild Mit Weissen Linien (Painting With White Lines)   in June 2017 with an auction result of GBP 33,008,750.00 (€ 37,590,807.66).

Auktionsergebnis verfehlt die Schätzpreisspanne

Dieses Kunstwerk von Wassily Kandinsky konnte im Mai diesen Jahres bei Christies in New York für einen unerwartet niedrigen Preis ersteigert werden. In der Auktion 20th Century Evening Sale wechselte die Arbeit Ohne titel (Improvisation) für USD 1.260.000,00 (€ 1.182.654,40) den Besitzer – und verfehlte damit das untere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne von USD 1.500.000,00 – 2.000.000,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Wassily Kandinsky erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Bild Mit Weissen Linien (Painting With White Lines)   im Juni 2017 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 33.008.750,00 (€ 37.590.807,66).
