Upper estimate price exceeded by more than 100%

This artwork by Ulala Imai achieved an unexpectedly high price at Sothebys in Hong Kong in July last year. In the Contemporary Curated: Hong Kong auction, the work Fruits sold for HKD 504,000.00 (€ 62,888.85) - well above the upper estimate of HKD 200,000.00. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Ulala Imai - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work Weary Traveler, which sold at auction in September this year for CNY 1,197,000.00 (€ 154,940.48).

Oberer Schätzpreis um mehr als 100% übertroffen

Dieses Kunstwerk von Ulala Imai erzielte im Juli letzten Jahres bei Sothebys in Hong Kong einen unerwartet hohen Preis. In der Auktion Contemporary Curated: Hong Kong wurde die Arbeit Fruits für HKD 504.000,00 (€ 62.888,85) versteigert – und damit weit über dem oberen Schätzpreis von HKD 200.000,00. Für andere Arbeiten von Ulala Imai mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit Weary Traveler beobachtet, die im September diesen Jahres für CNY 1.197.000,00 (€ 154.940,48) versteigert wurde.
