A top price for Kaws - as previously expected

The work Untitled (Kimpsons #1) by Kaws was sold in the Contemporary Art Evening Sale auction at Sothebys in Hong Kong in October 2019. The price achieved of HKD 57,877,000.00 (€ 6,615,255.49) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as HKD 48,000,000.00 – 68,000,000.00. Even if this result could not surprise positively, Untitled (Kimpsons #1) is the most expensive artwork by Kaws that we have observed at auctions so far.
