Asian 20th Century Art (Day Sale), Lot 122

GEORGETTE CHEN
(CHANG LI YING, Singaporean, 1906-1993)
Cattleya Orchid
signed 'Chen' in Pinyin (lower left)
oil on canvas
55 x 46 cm. (21 5/8 x 18 1/8 in.)

Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by Georgette Chen achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in Hong Kong in November 2012. In the Asian 20th Century Art (Day Sale) auction, the work Cattleya Orchid sold for HKD 1,700,000.00 (€ 168,562.64) - well above the upper estimate of HKD 700,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Georgette Chen achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Still Life with Big Durian in May this year with an auction result of HKD 14,290,000.00 (€ 1,712,814.91).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Georgette Chen erzielte im November 2012 bei Christies in Hong Kong einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Asian 20th Century Art (Day Sale) wurde die Arbeit Cattleya Orchid für HKD 1.700.000,00 (€ 168.562,64) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von HKD 700.000,00. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Georgette Chen erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Still Life with Big Durian im Mai diesen Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von HKD 14.290.000,00 (€ 1.712.814,91).
