Artwork auctioned at three times the upper estimate price

The work Two Sides Of The Same Coin by Lucien Smith was worth GBP 224,500.00 (€ 272,372.52) to a buyer in February 2014. This price was achieved in the auction Contemporary Art Evening Auction at Sothebys in London and exceeded the previously set upper estimate of GBP 60,000.00 many times over.
