Private Collection, Europe (acquired directly from the artist) | Acquired from the above by the present owner

Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by Amoako Boafo achieved an unexpectedly high price at Sothebys in London in April last year. In the Contemporary Curated auction, the work Body Politics 2 sold for GBP 226,800 (€ 260,886) - well above the upper estimate of GBP 90,000. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Amoako Boafo achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Orange Shirt in March this year with an auction result of CNY 8,760,000 (€ 7,656,004).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Amoako Boafo erzielte im April letzten Jahres bei Sothebys in London einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Contemporary Curated wurde die Arbeit Body Politics 2 für GBP 226.800 (€ 260.886) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von GBP 90.000. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Amoako Boafo erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Orange Shirt im März diesen Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von CNY 8.760.000 (€ 7.656.004).
