This artwork by Mitsuru Watanabe achieved an unexpectedly high price at Christies in Hong Kong in July last year. In the 20th/21st Century Art Online auction, the work Naoko Playing in Bosch’s Last Judgement sold for HKD 352,800.00 (€ 44,022.19) - well above the upper estimate of HKD 120,000.00. Despite this good result, it is not the highest hammer price for an artwork by Mitsuru Watanabe; that achieved among the auctions we observed the lot Naoko Bathing in the Woods of Rousseau sold at auction in May 2016 with the realized price of HKD 687,500.00 (€ 79,462.28).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen
