The estimate provided is based on comparables offered and sold at auction in the last five years. For works from that period, the results are fairly consistent. The subject work’s size, the composition, condition (based on photographs 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 the secondary (auction) market examples.
