Amoako Boafo

Self-Portrait

Found at Christies, London
20th Century Evening Sale, Lot 8
23. Mar - 23. Mar 2021
Estimate: 60.000 - 80.000 GBP
Price realised: 550.000 GBP
Amoako Boafo (B. 1984)
signed and dated 'Amoako M Boafo 16' (lower right)
oil on canvas laid down on board
37 ¼ x 43 7/8in. (94.5 x 111.5cm.)
Painted in 2016
Acquired directly from the artist by the present owner in 2017.

Artwork auctioned at six times the upper estimate price

The work Self-Portrait by Amoako Boafo was worth GBP 550,000 (€ 646,108) to a buyer in March last year. This price was achieved in the auction 20th Century Evening Sale at Christies in London and exceeded the previously set upper estimate of GBP 80,000 many times over. 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).

Kunstwerk zum Sechsfachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Die Arbeit Self-Portrait von Amoako Boafo war einem Käufer im März letzten Jahres GBP 550.000 (€ 646.108) wert. Dieser Preise wurde in der Auktion 20th Century Evening Sale bei Christies in London erzielt und übertraf den zuvor angesetzten oberen Schätzpreis von GBP 80.000 um ein Vielfaches. 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).
