This artwork by Amoako Boafo achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in London in March this year. In the 20th/21st Century: London Evening Sale auction, the work Yellow Blanket sold for GBP 1,242,000 (€ 2,078,684) - well above the upper estimate of GBP 600,000. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Amoako Boafo - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Orange Shirt, which sold at auction in March this year for CNY 8,760,000 (€ 7,656,004).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Amoako Boafo erzielte im März diesen Jahres bei Christies in London einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion 20th/21st Century: London Evening Sale wurde die Arbeit Yellow Blanket für GBP 1.242.000 (€ 2.078.684) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von GBP 600.000. Für andere Arbeiten von Amoako Boafo mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Orange Shirt beobachtet, die im März diesen Jahres für CNY 8.760.000 (€ 7.656.004) versteigert wurde.
