Despite a disappointment, a good price for Chow Chun Fai

In October 2017 a collector was able to acquire the work Bodyguards And Assassins (Quadriptych) by Chow Chun Fai for HKD 275,000.00 (€ 30,267.00). This price was achieved in the auction Contemporary Art – Day Sale at Sothebys in Hong Kong and was even below the estimate range of HKD 300,000.00 – 500,000.00 set by the auction house. Despite this disappointing result, Bodyguards And Assassins (Quadriptych) is the most expensive artwork by Chow Chun Fai that we have observed at auction so far.

Trotz Enttäuschung ein guter Preis für Chow Chun Fai

Im Oktober 2017 konnte ein Sammler die Arbeit Bodyguards And Assassins (Quadriptych) von Chow Chun Fai für HKD 275.000,00 (€ 30.267,00) erwerben. Dieser Preis wurde in der Auktion Contemporary Art – Day Sale bei Sothebys in Hong Kong erzielt und lag noch unterhalb der von dem Auktionshaus angesetzten Schätzpreisspanne von HKD 300.000,00 – 500.000,00. Trotz dieses enttäuschenden Ergebnisses ist Bodyguards And Assassins (Quadriptych) das teuerste Kunstwerk von Chow Chun Fai, das wir bisher bei Auktionen beobachtet haben.
