“Bares for Rares” (ZDF): man wants to sell drawings – Horst Lichter is completely off his socks
Something sees itself “Cash for Rares“Original Horst Lichter almost never!
With “Cash for Rares“(ZDF) many a mouth was open. Because Thomas “Tom” Müller brought him something very special. Moderator Horst Lichter was flabbergasted when he saw what it was.
The 48-year-old came to Horst Lichter with a drawing. He didn’t know much about it. He got it from his great aunt, whom she bought at an exhibition in the Harz, he says at “Cash for Rares“(ZDF). But the engineer probably forgot about a tiny detail.
“Bares for Rares” (ZDF): Moderator Horst Lichter is flabbergasted
- Horst Lichter: “You don’t know anything? Not even who painted it? “
- Thomas Müller: “Whoever painted it already. It is said to be from Dalí.
Horst Lichter is more than flabbergasted. “Uiiiii” is all the moderator says on it. The artist is actually the Spanish painter Salvador Dalí, as expert Albert Maier confirms.
But then a little disillusionment follows. “It cannot be a sketch”, says the art dealer. The drawing is numbered, which indicates a print. The signature of the surrealist is real.
This is Salvador Dalí:
- born on May 11, 1904 in Figueres, Catalonia
- he was a Spanish painter, graphic artist, writer, sculptor and stage designer
- he is considered one of the main representatives of surrealism
- and is one of the most famous painters of the 20th century
- In 1934 he married his Muse Gala
- from 1981 Dalí suffered from Parkinson’s
- His wife Gala died in 1982
- Salvador Dalí died in 1989 in his home town of Figueres at the age of 84
That’s how much Dalí print is worth
The drawing dates from 1965 and bears the title “Saint Anna”. On it you can see: Saint Anna, the baby Jesus and the Virgin Mary.
“And now it’s getting very exciting,” says the expert. “The signature goes into the sheet. Salvador Dalí has often signed white sheets and sold them. The print came later on his signature. “
Thomas Müller would like 300 euros for the printing of the Spanish master. Albert Maier is in good spirits that the hamburger can get the price. “It is an original from Dalí. 400 to 500 euros are justified ”, is the conclusion of the expert.
Top topics of the day:
Dealers are skeptical
Do traders put that much money in there? First of all, some retailers question the authenticity of the signature. “I think it’s a pressure,” said dealer Fabian. Only with the confirmation of the expert do the two believe that the master personally signed.
This is “Cash for Rares”:
- “Bares for Rares” is a junk show on ZDF
- It has been broadcast on the afternoon program since 2013
- Horst Lichter is the moderator
So the bidding can start. 80 euros is the first offer. The number is slowly increasing – and ends at 600 euros. Thomas Müller is more than happy and receives twice as much as he hoped. And the Dalí print changes hands.
