The work HOLIDAY (4) by Kaws was auctioned at Christies in Shanghai in March this year. It achieved a price of CNY 2,520,000 (€ 2,202,412), exceeding the upper end of the estimate range by 40%. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Kaws - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Untitled (Kimpsons #1), which sold at auction in October 2019 for HKD 57,877,000 (€ 6,615,255).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 40% übertroffen

Die Arbeit HOLIDAY (4) von Kaws kam im März diesen Jahres bei Christies in Shanghai zur Auktion. Sie erzielte dabei einen Preis von CNY 2.520.000 (€ 2.202.412) und übertraf damit das obere Ende der Schätzpreisspanne um 40%. Für andere Arbeiten von Kaws mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Untitled (Kimpsons #1) beobachtet, die im Oktober 2019 für HKD 57.877.000 (€ 6.615.255) versteigert wurde.
