A top price for Yee I-Lann

When the work Kinabalu Series: Huminodun by Yee I-Lann was auctioned at Christies in Hong Kong in May 2008, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - HKD 28,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than ten times as high at HKD 295,500.00 (€ 24,327.47). This high result makes Kinabalu Series: Huminodun the most expensive artwork by Yee I-Lann that we have observed at auctions so far.

Ein Spitzenpreis für Yee I-Lann

Als die Arbeit Kinabalu Series: Huminodun von Yee I-Lann im Mai 2008 bei Christies in Hong Kong versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – HKD 28.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit HKD 295.500,00 (€ 24.327,47) mehr als zehnmal so hoch. Dieses hohe Ergebnis macht Kinabalu Series: Huminodun zu dem teuersten Kunstwerk von Yee I-Lann, das wir bisher bei Auktionen beobachtet haben.
