In May 2017 Christies in Hong Kong held the auction Contemporaries: Voices from East and West / Asian 20th Century & Contemporary Art (Evening Sale), which included the work The Musicians by Vicente Silva Manansala. The »bidding war« ended at HKD 4,260,000.00 (€ 486,434.67), 52% above the upper estimate. Despite this good result, it is not the highest hammer price for an artwork by Vicente Silva Manansala; that achieved among the auctions we observed the lot Tiangge (Market Scene) sold at auction in November this year with the realized price of HKD 8,190,000.00 (€ 961,056.11).

Oberer Schätzpreis um 52 % übertroffen
