Artwork auctioned at five times the upper estimate price

When the work Batman (Blue) by Jerkface was auctioned at Sothebys in Hong Kong in January 2021, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - HKD 6,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than five times as high at HKD 32,760.00 (€ 3,482.52). Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Jerkface achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Homerbob Wave (Variant) in April this year with an auction result of HKD 119,700.00 (€ 122,237.12).

Kunstwerk zum Fünffachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit Batman (Blue) von Jerkface im Januar 2021 bei Sothebys in Hong Kong versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – HKD 6.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit HKD 32.760,00 (€ 3.482,52) mehr als fünfmal so hoch. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Jerkface erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Homerbob Wave (Variant) im April diesen Jahres mit einem Auktionsergebnis von HKD 119.700,00 (€ 122.237,12).
