Upper estimated price slightly exceeded

Here, the upper estimate of HKD 4,500,000.00 was slightly exceeded - the artwork found a new owner for HKD 4,685,000.00 (€ 543,373.26). However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Park Seo-Bo - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work ECRITURES NO. 10-79-83, which sold at auction in May 2017 for HKD 10,260,000.00 (€ 1,171,553.93).
