For your information, the estimate highlighted in red above is based on comparables offered and sold at auction in the last five years. The subject work’s size, its complexity, condition (based on photographs and comments provided), as well as the artists’ current auction market were taken into consideration when determining the estimate. In many cases, pricing for similar items available on the primary (retail) market varies and is often higher than secondary (auction) market examples.
