This artwork by Amoako Boafo achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in New York in May this year. In the 21st Century Evening Sale auction, the work Yellow Dress sold for USD 819,000 (€ 763,209) - well above the upper estimate of USD 350,000. 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 Hands Up, which sold at auction in December last year for HKD 26,650,000 (€ 3,018,669).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Amoako Boafo erzielte im Mai diesen Jahres bei Christies in New York einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion 21st Century Evening Sale wurde die Arbeit Yellow Dress für USD 819.000 (€ 763.209) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von USD 350.000. 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 Hands Up beobachtet, die im Dezember letzten Jahres für HKD 26.650.000 (€ 3.018.669) versteigert wurde.
