Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Secret Of The Forest by Mitsuru Watanabe was sold in the FIRST OPEN | Hong Kong auction at Christies in Hong Kong in March 2016. The price achieved of HKD 250,000.00 (€ 28,292.36) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as HKD 200,000.00 – 300,000.00. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Mitsuru Watanabe - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Naoko Bathing in the Woods of Rousseau, which sold at auction in May 2016 for HKD 687,500.00 (€ 79,462.28).

Auktionsergebnis im Rahmen der Erwartungen

Die Arbeit Secret Of The Forest von Mitsuru Watanabe wurde im März 2016 in der Auktion FIRST OPEN | Hong Kong bei Christies in Hong Kong versteigert. Der dabei erzielte Preis von HKD 250.000,00 (€ 28.292,36) lag im Rahmen der Erwartungen – die Schätzpreisspanne war von dem Auktionshaus zuvor mit HKD 200.000,00 – 300.000,00 angegeben worden. Für andere Arbeiten von Mitsuru Watanabe mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Naoko Bathing in the Woods of Rousseau beobachtet, die im Mai 2016 für HKD 687.500,00 (€ 79.462,28) versteigert wurde.
