BELLMANS AUCTIONS, 11TH OCTOBER 2022

 

IS THIS PORTRAIT A BARGAIN?



I FOLLOWED THIS SALE BECAUSE I WAS INTERESTED IN ONE PARTICULAR LOT THAT EVEN THOUGH A BARGAIN, IT BECAME AN AUCTION BATTLE THAT I HAD TO LEAVE ALONE. ON N ESTIMATE OF 300-500 POUNDS IT SOLD FOR 3800 PLUS COMMISSIONS.

HOWEVER, THE ONE SALE THAT ASTONISHED ME WAS THE SALE OF A PARTICULAR PORTRAIT THAT ON AN ESTIMATE OF 150-250 POUNDS IT SOLD FOR THE STAGGERING AMOUNT OF 38,000 POUNDS PLUS 30% COMMISSIONS AND TAXES.

THE PORTRAIT WAS AN 18TH -19TH CENTURY SCHOOL PAINTING OF ARENT DEPEYSTER.

MY ADVICE HAS BEEN CLEAR, CRYSTAL CLEAR. IN EVERY AUCTION THERE ARE BARGAINS. CAN YOU SPOT THE BARGAIN THESE DAYS OF THE INTERNET, WHERE ALL IS REVEALED AND ALL IS CHASED TO THE LIMIT?
