In March 2019 Phillips in London held the auction 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale, which included the work Untitled (Body Print) by David Hammons. The »bidding war« ended at GBP 555,000 (€ 644,172), 39% above the upper estimate.

Oberer Schätzpreis um 39% übertroffen

Im März 2019 führte Phillips in London die Auktion 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale durch, in der auch die Arbeit Untitled (Body Print) von David Hammons zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von GBP 555.000 (€ 644.172) und damit 39% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von David Hammons auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen eine Arbeit ohne Titel im November 2013 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von USD 8.005.000 (€ 5.883.434).
