This artwork by Georgette Chen achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in Hong Kong in December 2021. In the 20th/21st Century Art Evening Sale auction, the work Still Life (Mid Autumn Festival) sold for HKD 10,090,000.00 (€ 1,142,903.34) - well above the upper estimate of HKD 4,500,000.00. Despite this good result, it is not the highest hammer price for an artwork by Georgette Chen; that achieved among the auctions we observed the lot Still Life with Big Durian sold at auction in May this year with the realized price of HKD 14,290,000.00 (€ 1,712,814.91).
