GUY YANAI (B. 1977)
The Conformist (Tall Plant)
oil on canvas
150 x 120 cm. (59 x 47 1/4 in.)
Painted in 2019

Artwork auctioned at three times the upper estimate price

When the work The Conformist (Tall Plant) by Guy Yanai was auctioned at Christies in Shanghai in September this year, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - HKD 100,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than three times as high at HKD 327,600.00 (€ 39,526.19). However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Guy Yanai - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Bompard Interior, which sold at auction in July this year for GBP 88,200.00 (€ 102,902.67).

Kunstwerk zum Dreifachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit The Conformist (Tall Plant) von Guy Yanai im September diesen Jahres bei Christies in Shanghai versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – HKD 100.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit HKD 327.600,00 (€ 39.526,19) mehr als dreimal so hoch. Für andere Arbeiten von Guy Yanai mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Bompard Interior beobachtet, die im Juli diesen Jahres für GBP 88.200,00 (€ 102.902,67) versteigert wurde.
