Artwork auctioned at six times the upper estimate price

The work Still Life with Tropical Fruits by Georgette Chen was worth HKD 5,070,000.00 (€ 502,784.11) to a buyer in May 2013. This price was achieved in the auction Asian 20th Century & Contemporary Art (Evening Sale) at Christies in Hong Kong and exceeded the previously set upper estimate of HKD 800,000.00 many times over. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Georgette Chen - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Still Life with Big Durian, which sold at auction in May this year for HKD 14,290,000.00 (€ 1,712,814.91).
