Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Forces vives (Powerful Forces) by Chu Teh-Chun was sold in the 20th Century Art Day Sale auction at Christies in Hong Kong in May this year. The price achieved of HKD 2,457,000.00 (€ 294,498.69) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as HKD 2,200,000.00 – 3,200,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Chu Teh-Chun achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Harmonie Hivernale in April 2021 with an auction result of HKD 229,568,000.00 (€ 24,578,851.54).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Forces vives (Powerful Forces) von Chu Teh-Chun wurde im Mai diesen Jahres in der Auktion 20th Century Art Day Sale bei Christies in Hong Kong versteigert. Der dabei erzielte Preis von HKD 2.457.000,00 (€ 294.498,69) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit HKD 2.200.000,00 – 3.200.000,00 angegeben worden. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Chu Teh-Chun erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Harmonie Hivernale im April 2021 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von HKD 229.568.000,00 (€ 24.578.851,54).
