This artwork by Kang Hyung-Koo achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in Hong Kong in November 2013. In the Asian 20th Century & Contemporary Art (Evening Sale) auction, the work Warhol Test II sold for HKD 2,200,000.00 (€ 208,584.45) - well above the upper estimate of HKD 1,000,000.00. Despite this good result, it is not the highest hammer price for an artwork by Kang Hyung-Koo; that achieved among the auctions we observed the lot Vincent Van Gogh in Blue sold at auction in November 2007 with the realized price of HKD 4,567,500.00 (€ 399,283.09).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen
