Upper estimate price exceeded by 68 %.

The work Ghost by Huma Bhabha was sold in the 20th Century & Contemporary Art Day Sale, Afternoon Session auction at Phillips in New York in May 2018. The »bidding war« ended at USD 58,750.00 (€ 50,342.76), 68% above the upper estimate. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Huma Bhabha - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Untitled , which sold at auction in March 2019 for USD 200,000.00 (€ 178,126.11).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 68 % übertroffen
