This artwork by Natee Utarit achieved an unexpectedly high price at Sothebys in Hong Kong in October 2021. In the Contemporary Art Day Sale auction, the work The Last Description of the Old Romantic sold for HKD 819,000.00 (€ 91,102.41) - well above the upper estimate of HKD 350,000.00. Admittedly, works by Natee Utarit have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work GOD in May last year with an auction result of HKD 4,032,000.00 (€ 478,684.93).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen
